HAAM helps musicians who can’t afford health insurance.
Right now two thousand are enrolled in the program.
And it’s not just medical – HAAM has partnerships with dental, audiologists, mental health, vision, and nutrition.
Since HAAM was founded in 2005, more than three thousand musicians have used their services.
In order to qualify musicians must be low income, uninsured, and prove they are a working musician.
"Many people don't realize the majority of our local musicians are low income and make less than $12,000 a year, that accounts for the majority of musicians we serve," said Carolyn Schwarz, HAAM Executive Director.
HAAM Benefit Day is the organization's major fundraiser - last year it raised $312,000 and the goal this year is $350,000.
Musicians will also play at restaurants, shops, and administrative offices throughout the city beginning at 6a.m. at Whole Foods Market on Sixth Street. Click here for a complete list.
