Our Mission & Passion

Donny greeting a participantHeart & Hope Musical Ministries is devoted to promoting love, healing, and transformation through our interactive musical programs with special concern for poor and vulnerable people, such as the frail and elderly, the sick and injured, or those who are emotionally troubled.

We enhance the quality of life of those we encounter and share our music, time, and energy in a compassionate, attentive, and nurturing way.

Specially selected music and a bit of humor give comfort, encouragement, and emotional support to the frail and elderly and to ALL who hear it without regard for race, religion, gender, ethnicity, or financial status.

We offer a well designed interactive program of music that is positive, uplifting, and inspiring.

We encourage singing, dancing, and movement, playing “instruments” and sharing the connections “sparked” by our program.

We strive to entertain residents at Adult Foster Care Homes, Assisted Living Facilities, Hospitals, Retirement Centers, Nursing Homes, and other Elder Care settings, in a meaningful, memorable way.
