Mission

We provide access to affordable healthcare for Austin's low-income working musicians, with a focus on prevention and wellness.

What We Do

Many Austin musicians are self-employed and have no access to health insurance or basic healthcare. They often work multiple jobs and struggle to pay for food, clothing and shelter, with nothing left for healthcare.

That's where we come in. By resolving challenges such as long-neglected dental work to hearing loss, heart problems and depression, HAAM and our partners improve and save musicians' lives and enhance Austin's economy and quality of life. Austin is the "Live Music Capital of the World," and we aim to keep it that way.

We have helped over 5,300 musicians access over $73 million dollars in healthcare value since we began in 2005. These include routine dental work, doctor visits and prescriptions, psychiatric counseling sessions, eye exams, out-patient procedures, specialist referrals, hearing screenings and more.
