The University Muslim Medical Association (UMMA) Volunteer Program Community Clinic first opened its doors in 1996. UMMA aims to serve as a non-profit clinic to service those of the South Los Angeles community who might lack health insurance, be unemployed, or possibly be impoverished by providing free healthcare services. The clinic originated as a student run organization with roots in the Muslim Student Association at UCLA. Since its origin, the clinic has continued to hold strong relations with the campus it originated from by establishing the UMMA Volunteer Project (UVP) to correspond with its various programs and events in which volunteer participation is needed. This project not only benefits the UMMA community clinic by providing them with a core UCLA volunteer base but also by serving as a volunteer channel for those in the surrounding areas. Furthermore, UVP offers valuable opportunities to those UCLA students who would like to gain hands-on experience in the health related field, as well as provide those students with leadership and clinical experience.
