The UBU Project is an amazing organization! The Founder, David Simmons is a wonderful human and impacts so many individuals through his social-emotional, music-based residencies. They are connected with an amazing network in the education and behavioral health community state-wide, and the events they participate in are fun and impactful. Join the cause!
