Get Involved in 5HE’s Educational Programs this Spring!

This spring, we are excited to present two opportunities to get involved in our educational programs! We are currently wrapping up our second residency at Teen Living Programs and need help funding the final performance at OneStop Productions on May 21st at 12pm. Our goal is to raise $1000 to cover the cost of the venue and pay the participating teen musicians. Fifth House musicians visit Teen Living each week to teach composition and songwriting, public speaking, performance skills, and job readiness. Your contributions make it possible for young people experiencing homelessness to gain the skills necessary to sustain themselves financially as they stage a professional final performance!

Our second session at Deborah’s Place just began during the first week of May! We need your help to make it as successful as possible by funding stipends to the participants. We aim to raise $500 to provide $10 stipends to 10 people for the length of the residency!

At Deborah’s Place, which has provided care for homeless women since 1985, we lead a 5-week music and poetry residency that culminates in a moving performance of original poetry set to live music performed by Fifth House musicians. Stipends, such as the ones we offer, can mean the difference between our participants working an extra shift or taking this opportunity to share their experiences through music and spoken word.

 Please ask your friends and family to join us in supporting profound and lasting change in the lives of these participants!
