Supporting Our Mission

At a time when many are still dealing with the upending of their lives caused by the events of the last few years, consistent access to therapeutic services is a key element of bringing back stability, community, and hope to the lives of our clients and their families.

Nearly 40% of all A Place To Be families receive some portion of financial aid support. Since inception, we have maintained that struggles with finances should not be a barrier to therapeutic services, to having access to community performances, and social engagement for families.

You support helps individuals and their families access life-changing therapeutic services and make critical connections with others to combat isolation, anxiety, and loneliness.

Forrest Stone Allen started his financial aid fund after surviving a traumatic brain injury. Forrest credits music therapy as the key to regaining his ability to speak. By supporting our financial aid fund this, you allow us to continue providing this life changing therapy to those in need who would otherwise not have access to therapeutic services.

Jack Price Memorial Fund

Jack Price was with A Place To Be from the beginning, shaping us into the organization we are today. Over his 10 years at A Place To Be, Jack Price – along with the friends he made along the way – was an advocate for the healing power of music. In those 10 years, Jack Price performed for thousands of local students, sharing not only music therapy, but messages of empathy and understanding through our touring productions in “The Same Sky Project”.

Jack was an avid Beatles fan his whole life, and loved performing music. A Place To Be now features an onsite recording studio named in his honor, where our clients can create and recording music of their own.
