I support the NOMC because the team remains dedicated to fulfilling their mission of providing access to quality care and health services to their patients regardless of insurance or ability to pay. NOMC is constantly looking for new ways to positively impact our community. Interning at the Assistance Foundation reaffirmed my passion and commitment for community service, and I look forward to continuing to volunteer alongside these inspirational team-members.”

I am a music enthusiast and enjoy giving back something to help the local musicians that I value so much. The Musicians Clinic provides a vital, specialized medical service. I’m happy and proud to be able to contribute in any way that I can.

The Musician’s Clinic provides an extremely important service that would otherwise be very difficult to access and afford for many people. Every human deserves access to quality, affordable health care and the Musician’s Clinic is able to provide this to those who make New Orleans the wonderful city that it is.

I support the Musicians’ Clinic because I believe that without healthy music makers and culture bearers, New Orleans would not be the amazing place that lives in your heart – no matter where in the world you are. Without the beat of New Orleans, there is no joy, there is no comfort. Then what do you have?

The clinic has proven that it saves lives, extends lives and educates the musicians to lead a healthier life by being proactive before health problems surface.

The services the clinic provides helps the musicians in the city of New Orleans continue to perform day in and day out. A musician’s income is often not enough to afford health care, and as the saying goes, “The show must go on”…. musicians rarely if ever take sick days. Maintaining the health of our musicians, in a city where music helps drive the entire community, is arguably the most important thing an organization can do.

Musicians and performers are among the most cherished and most vulnerable populations in New Orleans. I have so many friends who have received essential care and assistance from NOMC for physical, preventative and mental health care. Knowing that, when the need comes, they will be there makes me happy to support them. They do so much good for so many.

Musicians are the heart of the body New Orleans. Supporting and helping our musicians stay healthy and alive is as important as heart health is to our individual bodies. The Musicians’ Clinic does so much for the creative community; without it we would all lose so much and our collective hearts would be sick. Volunteering with the NOMC is one of the most rewarding ways to give back to the community that gives us so much.

The clinic is very supportive and extremely encouraging. They understand the needs of musicians, both physically and mentally. They provide services most of us couldn’t afford otherwise.

Although I’m a visual artist, I absolutely love live music and support musicians in any way I can. I’m a NOLA Girl at heart and recognize that the music of New Orleans is a huge part of what makes this city so wonderful and culturally diverse. The Musicians’ Clinic literally keeps the musicians of New Orleans alive and healthy, and that is a cause I will continue to stand behind for years to come.

I love New Orleans and the lifeblood of New Orleans is music. If musicians are not healthy, New Orleans cannot thrive. NOMC keeps musicians healthy. NOMC does a phenomenal job so I know that my help and my donations will be put to extremely good use. I have worked with many non-profits and activist organizations my whole life, and NOMC is at the top of the list for getting things done, things that matter.

New Orleans is one of the most unique cities in the world and it wouldn’t be New Orleans if it wasn’t for its culture bearers! This population often has equally unique and needs that can’t be met by general providers, and often there are many barriers to them accessing ANY care. Luckily, NOMC appreciates and supports culture bearers and their unique needs like no other organization on the planet ensuring they have access to a wide breadth of health services. As a provider, I have witnessed first hand how much access to the medical and mental healthcare offered by NOMC can take a culture bearer from barely surviving to blossoming and thriving!

I share NOMCAF passion for our city’s musicians and cultural bearers. Their dedication, constant innovation and integrity are not only effective but unparalleled. It’s a pleasure to assist an organization with such probity. This has been a two way street when suddenly faced cancer NOMACAF came through with support on every level.

The New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic is one of the best things to have ever happened to New Orleans musicians. I know of countless musicians and culture bearers who would not be alive today without NOMC’s services. It’s a model for a non-profit health services organization that does exactly what it says it will do.

Musicians are not known for living a healthy lifestyle. It is wonderful to know that someone is out there looking out for them. The staff at NOMC & AF saved my life years ago and I will forever be grateful. Keeping the music alive is so very important and I am willing to do what I can to keep it going.
