Chase the Music

A new member of our Giving Back program
 

Chase the Music gives children battling critical conditions love, hope, strength and joy. We do this with original music - composed and performed just for them.

The impact of Chase the Music programs begins with the child. The children (that we write and perform for) are undergoing situations that no child should. The gift of a personal commissioned piece of music is like no other. It's unique and created just for that child. Artists are closely aligned with the child to facilitate the creation of truly meaningful music. This alignment gets in their heads and they are changed by the experience.

A Little Help

A new member of our Giving Back Program
 

A Little Help is a volunteer based nonprofit organization in Denver, Colorado. We started in 2005 as Washington Park Cares when a group of retirees recognized the desire of many seniors in the area to stay in their own homes and contribute to their respective communities. These neighbors based their model on the national village movement, where neighbors coordinate and deliver essential services within their community to allow elders to remain in their homes. In 2007,  we incorporated as a 501(c)(3) with the mission of providing older adults with non-medical services essential to maintaining active, productive lives in their own homes within community.
