Finding Their Voice.
In partnership with Catholic Community Services, the Music Project provides music therapy services to formerly homeless veterans in Snohomish County. After receiving therapy services, veterans report feeling more hopeful and an increased sense of community with other participants. One participant added that “Tuesdays and Thursdays are starting to become his favorite days of the week.”
Using a trauma-informed approach, the music therapists promote healthy pro-social skills, increased resilience, and developing consistent relationships. The program maintains a client-led initiative that allows veterans to develop self-advocacy skills.
Programming includes opportunities for individualized adaptive music lessons as well as a community jam group. In the community setting, participants exercise their developing resiliency and self-expression skills.
As a result, music therapy gives a voice to veterans who otherwise struggle to express themselves and/or process the trauma experienced inside and outside of their military service.
