All Kids Need Music
But Especially At Risk Kids

Every Child
Needs a

For children in difficult circumstances, whether it is an orphaned U.S. child living in foster care, a homeless child, or an at risk child living near or below the poverty level, music has the power to heal trauma, improve mental health, and create better academic outcomes.  This is why we believe all kids need music, but especially at risk kids. 

Did you know that playing music actually increases children’s IQs as well as increases their happiness levels?  Both of these benefits are so important for children who are struggling against the odds. 

We need sponsors for the thousands of orphans and homeless children right here in our own towns and cities. Our sponsors are truly champions for the most at risk children in our nation. Champions for U.S. orphans and at risk youth can help provide the opportunities they need to succeed. 

Champions sponsor therapeutic music lessons with professional trauma trained teachers,  supply the instruments, and help us grow our outreach to these students, the schools they attend, and in some cases the foster homes they live in.

No Place To Call Home
AKNM August 2022 Newsletter

Once children are removed from their homes to protect them, they are housed in shelters, group homes, and foster homes.  Unfortunately, for one reason or another, they are forced to move an average twice a year.  They pack their meager possessions in a garbage bag, backpack, or shabby suitcase.
