Dear Friends:

As we celebrate this season of family, reflection and thanks, SEAMAAC would like
to take this opportunity to send you our heartfelt appreciation of your continuing
commitment to our mission. Our work in 2014 was an unprecedented success –
befitting of SEAMAAC’s 30th year milestone of quality services to thousands of
Philadelphians.

You are a vital part of SEAMAAC’s vision in Building Stronger Communities. On behalf
of the individuals and families that SEAMAAC serve, we send our Season’s Greetings
to you and your family.

Did you get Obamacare this year? Did you send your immigration and citizenship documents to the Marketplace? Some people were enrolled in health insurance, but the Marketplace never got their documents. Click Here

New Route
New Routes to Community Health

Our Stories, Our Health was awarded $225,000 by New Routes to Community Health, a program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Benton Foundation designed to improve the health of immigrants in the United States through media created by immigrants. Here in Philadelphia, Our Stories, Our Health is a collaborative media health initiative aiming to engage immigrant Laotian and Vietnamese seniors in the process of identifying and describing health needs through personal storytelling, video production, and discussion about health in the Southeast Asian community.

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.

Health & Social Services
The Health & Social Services Department Staff supports SEAMAAC's mission by continuing to serve refugee and immigrant families and communities to overcome linguistic and cultural barriers in order to improve the quality of their lives through education such as ESL, health promotion, information & referral, case management, advocacy, community programs, and collaboration with other health care and social service providers.

Education
The Education Department serves elementary and high school students and young adults in their educational experience through after-school enrichment programs, truancy prevention, and summer programs. Understanding the crucial role parents, family and community support play in the success of students, the Family and Youth Department engages the participation and fosters leadership of parents and community stakeholders.
