Why Do We Need Your Support?

Nearly 50% of the revenue for Arts For Healing comes from individual donors and grant making organizations. Because of the nature of this individually intensive therapy program, fees alone do not cover the full cost. As a non-profit organization, Arts For Healing relies heavily on the generosity of individuals, foundations and corporations to help ensure that our special needs clients, along with their families, have access to the integrated art and music therapy programs that make a meaningful difference in their lives.
Your donations help improve the quality of life for our clients, and ensure that affordable, high-quality integrated art and music therapy services are available to those who need them. We encourage your interest, questions and support.

What parents are saying

Daniel has grown in so many ways through the art and music sessions. He is expressing himself so much more clearly and fully. He seems to be so much more comfortable with who he is.
Cheryl, Daniel's mother
Her awareness of others and her ability to use her language has improved tremendously in the past few years. I think the music has been a real key in her development.
Heidi's mother
Dear Karen, you have been able to bring out Harold's smile and his joy of life. He can open up and let us know more of what he is feeling and thinking. What a gift for a parent!
From a parent
I've seen Manny move from being isolated and in his own world to being able to join his peers in school and even at home with his younger sister.
Jason, Manny's father
Thank you for your music and for all the joy and learning you've brought to Jeremy. All the musical intelligence you've encouraged will thrive! He'll always remember you.
