We raise our own voices on behalf of Veterans in a variety of forums:
Heroes’ Voices actively lobbies for research and programming to bring music and music therapy to Veterans.
We work with legislators.at the national, regional, and local levels to build awareness and support initiatives to increase our understanding of — and access by Veterans to — music.
We partner with other organizations around the country to create a louder and more impactful voice on behalf of Veterans who can benefit from the gift of music.
Contact your government representatives to support research into and funding for music and music therapy for Veterans.
Heroes’ Voices supports research into the healing effects of music and music therapy for Veterans with PTSD and other battle-related injuries.
Working under the auspices of the Veterans Administration through the Palo Alto Veterans Institute for Research (PAVIR), and with Humboldt State University, we are exploring methods and metrics that can provide a better understanding of the value of music and music therapy. We expect this study to provide information we need to improve and expand our programs.
Heroes' Voices enjoys partnerships with a variety of organizations providing services to veterans, universities, community organizations, and foundations. For example:
- We expand the reach of our programs to more veterans through our partnerships with veterans organizations, the San Francisco County Jail, and various components of the VA system.
- We sponsor research into the impact of music therapy on veterans with PTSD and traumatic brain injury through our partnerships with the Palo Alto Veterans Institute for Research (PAVIR) and Humboldt State University.
- We partner with other organizations around the country to create a louder and more impactful voice on behalf of Veterans who can benefit from the gift of music.
Heroes’ Voices provides live music to Veterans in residential, hospital, and hospice settings free of charge.
These performances bring the beauty of music to residents, many of whom are challenged by mobility limitations that restrict their access to other performance venues. Patients in hospital wards and hospices enjoy the soothing and healing effects of music.
