Music That Reclaims is a not for profit organization that works to reclaim the lives of children lost in foster and adoptive care using music. Founded by a woman who was in and out of 20 foster homes before she was 10 years old, its aim is to use music to heal past pain. Children are gifted instruments, offered music therapy and taken to concerts through Music That Reclaim’s musical mission to save lives. The children in the program say music helps them get in touch with their feelings and that for them music is medicine. One young boy is learning to play the tuba for the first time he and his parents say it helps with his emotional tone.
