Many servicemen and women suffer physical and emotional injuries or the effects of Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD) leading to problems such as broken families, drug addiction, depression, homelessness, and suicide.
But even if Veterans are not facing such issues, they can experience a healthy environment of camaraderie at our weekly music sessions, socializing and building friendships with fellow Veterans through music.
The program also allows Veterans to build confidence and demonstrate the skills they've developed through live performances throughout the community. We partner with the VA, VWs, American Legions, local sports teams, and non-profits who invite us to participate in events and fundraisers.
Many Vets are reluctant to seek help because they worry about the “stigma” of PTSD following them throughout their lives, making it difficult to find a job and provide for their families.
Veterans freely participate in the Music for Veterans because it's totally confidential and no records are kept on their participation in our program.
Donations are tax-deductible through our fiscal sponsor Embracing Our Veterans.
