Like any start-up, the work and growth have been exponential. Surpassing the 100 concert mark this year was a real milestone and a credit to the staying power of this organization.
Julie says it best: For the homeless, an interactive, respectful concert bringing the therapeutic power of classical music directly into the shelter can provide hope, a sense of self-worth, and renewed energy to address the challenges of homelessness. Just as others work to shelter and feed homeless citizens, Shelter Music Boston feeds their souls.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Expand the Board to increase the donor and talent base. Acquire an administrative assistant or other support staff to share the workload. Increase the volunteer roster so many can contribute. The concept and delivery are so meaningful, that the best change I can suggest would be to grow!
