Hillcroft Services’ Music Therapy Program hit the ground running just under five years ago. Since the inception of the program, it has flourished, and currently serves 185 clients from ages 3 to 85. “The Music Therapy Program was founded with the intent of helping our clients become more involved in the community, by means of partnerships and outreach programs. Clients have continued to express their interests in new music ideas and groups at Hillcroft. It has been our role to assist them in developing the skills needed (i.e. social, communication, daily living, etc.) to live a meaningful and fulfilling life.” said Anna Wamhoff, Music Therapy Services Coordinator.

Debbie Bennett, President & CEO said, “The Annual Music Concert is something I look forward to each year because it is so inspiring to witness our clients continue to improve year after year.”
