Results: Many people involved in our students' day to day life have seen a vast improvement in life skills once a student becomes involved with our program. School teachers, therapists, and foster parents have noticed the increase in self-esteem and confidence our students exhibit, as well as a willingness to become more readily involved in school and other healthy activities. Students also have shown an increased willingness to trust, as our teachers become a constant and steady influence in their life. We have had students transfer to as many as 4-5 schools and homes in a one-year period, and the support and encouragement from their music teacher is sometimes the only stable factor in their unpredictable circumstances. We are encouraged to see what a real difference music can make to a child who has suffered unimaginable neglect and abuse.
Target demographics: Any child that is currently in the Texas foster care system.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 30-50 students
Geographic areas served: Texas

I have donated to Kids in a New Groove and feel that it is one of the best nonprofits I have ever come across. This organization is reaching kids that are otherwise excluded from the arts. I only wish that every kid who has to go through the painful journey of foster care could experience something like Kids in a New Groove. At their fundraiser, one of the boys performed and it was magical - for him and for us! Please spread the word about Kids in a New Groove - they need to grow this program!!!
