Following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic (NOMC, established 1998) expanded its outreach by creating the New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation (NOMAF).
NOMAF is the 501(c)3 non-profit organization which supports and expands the mission of the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic.
Our mission is to keep New Orleans music ALIVE by sustaining members of New Orleans’ traditional music cultures. We do this by providing cost-efficient access to comprehensive and preventive health care, wellness education, mental health services and social services.
Through partnerships with service providers and community organizations, we are able to provide meaningful programs and services to ensure the well-being of NOMC patients and members of the local music community- including but not limited to musicians, Mardi Gras Indians, Social Aid & Pleasure Club members, dancers, performers, artists, and culture workers.
Programs and Events
Powered by our dedication to cultivating vitality of mind, body, and spirit, NOMAF supports musicians outside of the clinic through wellness education and our ‘Prevent Death by Lifestyle’ community programming. Community Programs like Save New Orleans Sounds, Herman Ernest Memorial Health Screening Initiative, and the Dancer Wellness Program are designed to engage patients in their own wellness strategies.
