OUR MISSION & PASSION
Heart & Hope Musical Ministries is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to promoting love, healing, and transformation through our interactive musical programs with special concern for poor and vulnerable people, such as the frail and elderly, the sick and injured, or those who are emotionally troubled.
We enhance the quality of life of those we encounter and share our music, time and energy in a compassionate, attentive and nurturing way.
Specially selected music and a bit of humor give comfort, encouragement, and emotional support to the frail and elderly and to ALL who hear it without regard for race, religion, gender, ethnicity, or financial status.
We honor many musical traditions and have lots of fun sharing folk songs, jazz standards, old time favorites, humorous hits, patriotic songs, interfaith spirituals, and special holiday songs. We offer a well designed interactive program of music that is positive, uplifting, and inspiring.
We encourage singing, dancing and movement, playing “instruments” and sharing the connections “sparked” by our program.
We travel to and serve at Adult Foster Care Homes, Assisted Living Facilities, Hospitals, Retirement Centers, Nursing Homes, and other Elder Care settings throughout the Rogue Valley.
Our desire is to extend this charitable work to all of Southern Oregon (and perhaps beyond) by educating, training and hiring therapists, facilitators, performers and volunteers to utilize our proven, life-enriching musical program thereby raising the consciousness of our community to the value of music as therapy in service.
