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.

Music Is Healing Arizona Orphans

All Kids Need Music is helping Arizona’s orphans heal from life threatening, heartbreaking abuse and neglect. These vulnerable abused children are at significantly higher risk for negative physical, psychological, and cognitive outcomes. Through no fault of their own, they have not only experienced horrific trauma, but continue to suffer the long term effects of the abuse they endured. Without intervention, these long term effects can rob them of a the chance for a productive, happy life. Fortunately, research illustrates that abused children may be able to recover with

appropriate interventions. Learning to play music is one intervention proven to improve cognitive functioning, educational outcomes, and positively impact mental health. All Kids Need Music focuses on providing Arizona foster children whose parental rights are severed the opportunity to heal through the transformative power of learning to play a musical instrument. All Kids Need Music is a non-profit organization staffed with professional trauma-trained music teachers. The organization provides the musical instrument of the child’s choice or voice lessons (ten instruments to choose from).  Lessons are conducted online to eliminate transportation barriers and maintain a consistent teacher/mentor relationship because children in foster care frequently move from group home to group home.  Changing group homes hampers the foster child’s ability to build trusting adult relationships with care providers, teachers, etc. Consistency with the child’s music instructor rebuilds trust in caring adults. The trauma trained teacher gently mentors the abused child while creating a positive outlet for emotional expression, which is key to healing. The All Kids Need Music program for Arizona’s orphans also gives each wounded child ownership – their own musical instrument, the opportunity to participate in extra-curricular activities, and a growing set of musical skills to build self esteem. Word is getting around – as orphaned foster children discover that other foster children are taking music lessons, they want to take lessons as well.  All Kids Need Music urgently needs corporate and individual sponsors to cover the costs of the lessons and instruments so that every orphaned Arizona child that wants to take music or voice lessons can do so.  Helping Arizona orphans heal from horrific abuse that no child should ever endure is something every caring Arizonan and Arizona business can do something about.  Child sponsorship information is available online at
