Christina Anagonye is the founder of UIH and is a Family Medicine physician resident. She is also an alumnus of MSU CHM. She was inspired by her immigrant parents who struggled and experienced culture shock for years while living in America. In 2013, she received her B.S. in Biochemistry and Chemical Biology from Wayne State University. In August 2022, she successfully completed her MBA program at Eastern Michigan University. Coming from an underserved community, Christina is dedicated to reducing health inequities and destigmatizing mental health. Outside of work, Christina enjoys spending time with her son, Salvador, and traveling.

Uloma Immigrants House motto, “a house unique to be called a home.”, is the essence of founding the Uloma Immigrants’ House. Our House will provide a sense of belonging to a welcoming community, a home away from home. In order to prevent cultural shock in the immigrant community, the residents will be living in the house as part of the process.

Gradual procedures will be undertaken while many aspects of life’s needs are being met spiritually, intellectually, and physically, like learning English language, developing new skills like driving, attending school for needed skills for careers and other interests. The residents will be given the opportunity to feel at home while gradually adapting to the new world and culture. They will learn how to shop for food and clothes, read maps and understand directions, develop new skills and improve on already possessed ones.

These can be accomplished through the provision of quality services, caring with professionalism, and incorporating hospitality with moral values and respect for humanity and human rights. There will be embracement of diversity and, uniqueness of personality without discrimination based on ages, races, gender, or sex. Uloma Immigrants’ House is committed to upholding, beholding and sustaining these morals and values.

Our Mission: Uloma Immigrants’ House’s mission is to provide necessary resources for the underserved communities, such as immigrants/refugees, who want to successfully live in the U.S.A by adapting to American culture while maintaining their uniqueness.

Our Vision: Uloma Immigrants’ House’s vision is to construct better and healthier communities by providing innovative and effective social services to their residents.
