The Lives We Touch

Cathy and CynthiaIt is difficult for many veterans to re-acclimate to civilian life, especially the estimated 500,000 veterans who are returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injuries (TBI).

Heroes’ Voices empowers the men and women who have served our country with a sense of connection and pride through participation in musical ensembles and performances. The prescription of music as therapeutic tool is robustly supported by medical and scientific evidence.

Every week, Heroes’ Voices touches the lives of scores of veterans with the gift of music and poetry. We inspire individuals and forge supportive, healing communities.

Read our stories and watch our videos about the joys and challenges we encounter as we connect veterans with music, with poetry, and with each other.
