This year, our direct services – including programs for women, children, families, and the elderly – have assisted more than 1600 immigrant, refugee and native-born individuals, reaching more than 18 distinct linguistic communities. Our educational, social, and health services have used creative and effective strategies, including the arts, gardening, culture, counseling, advocacy and organizing to empower community members in navigating through the school, insurance, health, and justice systems.
Despite excellent stewardship of our financial resources the harsh reality of politics in Pennsylvania threatens to close down our programs and services. As the current State budget impasse approaches 150th day, its effects have begun to impact our ability to deliver critical services to the low income families we serve. That is why a timely gift is more important than ever.
Our continued vision is to build a society where newcomers and native-born are given equal opportunities to prosper, live free of oppression, and achieve their American dreams. SEAMAAC’s vision and work are even more critical given the current anti-immigration that pervades the political discourse today. Your generous financial support will enable SEAMAAC to achieve this vision. And while not the reason to support us, your donation is 100% tax deductible.

WHYY Learning Lab Video
Our Stories, Our Health is a project that has been teaching Vietnamese and Laotian elders to shoot video interviews about health topics they identified as important to their communities. The footage will be used in health workshops throughout the Southeast Asian community in the Philadelphia area. The Learning Lab has provided the video training, which is the focus of this behind-the-scenes look at the project.
