Assalaam 'alaykum,
 
2014 has been a big year for AMHP.We celebrated our 10-Year Anniversary and made great strides in each of our different programs:  
 
1. Connecting Muslims to Coverage
 
This year, we informed 27,000 people about affordable, comprehensive health care through the new Health Insurance Marketplace. We helped families enroll in insurance plans that cover 100% of their preventive care, do not deny health care to people with pre-existing conditions, and allow children to stay on their parents' insurance until the age of 26.
 
2. EnabledMuslim

We also launched EnabledMuslim.org to provide support and resources to people like Ismail, whose brother lives with autism. Ismail says:
 

"Growing up there was nothing fully institutionalized...to provide resources for Muslims with disabilities... When I saw the EnabledMuslim website, I was totally ecstatic... I was very impressed with [how it offers] just the kind of basic information people need. I know a lot of families who have children with disabilities, and they find it a kind of burden because they're just not sure how to get the right assistance they need....My brother's 22 now, so he's at a point in his life where he can drive what he wants to do now for his upcoming adult life. I'm hoping EnabledMuslim will allow him to find a network."
 
3. Mental Health First Aid

Partnering with Muslim Wellness Foundation, we trained 30 imams and community leaders from the D.C. area on the skills to identify, understand, and respond to mental illnesses and substance abuse disorders. These trainees discussed the reality of mental health in their mosques and communities and the role they can play in reducing stigma.
 
Before 2014 ends, I hope you will give AMHP the greatest 10th birthday gift by donating today to help us reach our goal of $23,000. Whether you give $15 or $150, your contribution will help sustain these vital programs.
 
With your support, I look forward to another 10 years of healthy communities inspired by faith, inshaAllah!
