Hi-Hope supports adults with a wide variety of intellectual and developmental disabilities. We have been doing this successfully for over 58 years. We would like to enhance our program by providing a weekly "Music Appreciation Hour" where a musician/s visits and performs a rather intimate concert for our individuals. We hope to have the same musician/s visit each week to develop a relationship with our folks and to learn what songs or types of music keep them engaged.
Perhaps the second level of this project would be developing - with the help of our staff - a way to involve our individuals in creating music. Whether this means teaching them to play instruments, helping them to write songs, or whatever - the sky is the limit and we are willing to try anything.
If you want to bring the gift of music to Hi-Hope, please let us know by filling out our short Volunteer Application at www.hihopecenter.org/volunteer.
