The Music Therapy Impact Fund is a fund with The North Valley Community Foundation that implements music therapy programs and provides individual music therapy services.

Funds will be used to create music therapy programs in Chico and the surrounding areas. Programs may be developed at health facilities (medical, hospice, rehabilitation facilities, etc.), in the school system, and/or for other for-profit and not-for-profit entities (assisted living, special education, etc.).

As a consulting music therapist for the Fund, I am very pleased to be able to say that The Music Therapy Impact Fund has recently begun it's first pilot music therapy program, providing music therapy to patients receiving hospice and palliative care.

Relying solely on donations, this pilot program will remain in effect for up to three years. The goal is to show the benefits and efficacy of music therapy so that it will ultimately be provided as a standard of care through all hospice providers.

An Evening with Spirit to benefit The Music Therapy Impact Fund

Date: Friday, September 22nd, 2017
Time: 7-9 pm
Location: The Hub, 240 Main Street, 2nd floor, next to The Creperie

Join me for an opportunity to connect with your loved ones in spirit. This gallery style event is similar to what you would see on the popular Medium TV shows. At this small intimate gallery, the number of attendees is limited to that as many possible messages from spirit are shared. Receive messages from loved ones in spirit and learn from each other’s experiences while supporting your community. We expect this to be another unique and memorable event like we had last year.
