All Kids Need Music Non Profit Foster Care Music Program


All Kids Need Music, a music non profit, is changing foster children’s lives through the transformative power of therapeutic music lessons. Watch the recent television interview below to learn more:
KOLD News 13 in Tucson, Arizona shares how All Kids Need Music is connecting children in foster care with music teachers trained in trauma.
“These children who have been through horrific, horrific abuse are the ones who need the trauma healing,” said Vicki Isaac, the founder of We Are Their Future, which helps foster children find forever homes. However, she said until that day comes, many children can live in up to three households a year. The virtual music lessons give them the opportunity to see a familiar face no matter where they go. “If you can imagine what that does to a child who doesn’t have parents. Who do you trust? Do you want to build another relationship with someone? After a while these children start shutting down,” she said.
From just one month of lessons, music teacher Karen Shaffstall can already see her student progressing. “She grasps everything I say to her,” Shaffstall said. “She’s on the edge of her seat listening.”
The music teachers are helping students develop musical skills and a meaningful bond. “I feel like we’ve built a special kinship, a relationship and this happens very often in music settings,” she said. “It’s kind of that family feeling.”
Providing children consistency and an adult they can trust is the ultimate goal of the program. “I said if you ever need anything, you know if you need to talk or whatever I’m here not only musically. She said that’s so great,” Shaffstall said.
Each child gets their own instrument which helps give them a sense of ownership. “While we work on finding forever families for them, they need the healing,” Isaac said.

Adopt Foster Children from Foster Care in Arizona or Around the U.S.

There are over 3,000 children in foster care in Arizona alone that are legally eligible to be adopted right now. As heartbreaking as it is, these children’s biological parents no longer have parental rights. These children desperately need a family to offer them support, care, love, and, more importantly, a forever home. Married couples, families, and even single applicants can be eligible to adopt foster children who are eagerly waiting for a family. A foster child’s life is restored when they are welcomed into a safe, loving, and permanent home with their forever family.

Building Arizona Families Encourages Us to Adopt Arizona Foster Children

Are you wondering if you are eligible to adopt children from Arizona foster care? To adopt children from foster care in Arizona or around the U.S., applicants need to be living in Arizona and found legally eligible to adopt a child or teen in foster care. Applicants do not need to be foster care certified to adopt foster children in Arizona but certified to adopt through a home study. For approximately six months, a child will be welcomed into the adoptive home before being legally adopted. Learn more about the requirements to adopt Arizona foster children HERE.

The majority of foster children are five years of age or older. There are also sibling groups or children who have a higher level of need. All children in the foster system deserve to feel the stability and love of a forever family. Download our Adopting Foster Children Information Guide HERE.

We Need Men and Women to Make a Difference in the Lives of Children in Arizona and Around the United States

Foster children need reliable and safe adults to help turn their life away from loneliness, abuse, and/or neglect. Because of the circumstances children in foster care may experience daily, foster children struggle to form crucial bonds with safe and supportive adults. Becoming a forever parent to a foster child, who no longer has a family of their own, will fill them purpose and begin to instill trust and important values into their lives.

As a non-profit, licensed Arizona adoption agency, we have helped families with the adoption process since 2004.
