Healing with Music
Harmony, Hope & Healing creates a safe environment where vulnerable individuals and families heal and rebuild their lives through the restorative power of music. The organization serves adults, children and families who have been affected by traumas such as homelessness, incarceration, addiction and isolation. Their programs have helped more than 10,000 individuals since our founding in 2003. Harmony, Hope and Healing provides music classes at 14 sites, including shelters, residential programs, community outreach centers and Cook County Jail. These music classes teach participants appropriate and healthy ways to relieve stress, express emotions and develop positive relationships. They aid individuals whom have been through traumas such as homelessness, incarceration, addiction and isolation. They achieve this through activities such as mindful breathing and humming exercises, discussions about songs and readings, as well as singing, dancing and drumming.
