“I have gotten better at being patient while getting to use my passion for singing. It’s easy to make friends with everyone at Voices Together.”

Robbie, Community Group Member

Voices Together’s VOICSS® in the Community program delivers our proprietary music therapy model to any individual age five or older who wants to build and increase social-communication, emotional identification and expression, and self-advocacy skills to empower their lives.

Program

Community group sessions meet once a week throughout the year in communal spaces provided by Voices Together partners (churches, YMCAs, event spaces, etc.).

Weekly sessions are approximately 45-60 minutes, depending on group goals, needs and age. They focus on communication skills and development toward speech, improving social skills, increasing cognitive development and promoting self-advocacy. 

Each group consists of four to 10 clients (smaller group sizes for younger clients). Our VOICSS®-trained music therapists provide a predictable schedule for clients to express their thoughts and feelings, learn and become successful as they progress toward their goals each week. Workers and parents are welcome and encouraged to observe and participate, depending on client support needs. 

Cost

VOICSS® in the Community sessions cost $25 per session. As a nonprofit, Voices Together receives some grant funding that can help organizations offset these costs. Some scholarships are available through our Brenna Currie Scholarship Fund.
