For well over three decades, impacting more than 385,000 children and caregivers, KidLinks has provided healing experiences for children with special needs through performing arts and media, therapeutic music initiatives, university-level music therapy training and free/low cost treatment programs. The importance of generous past support of donors and granting organizations in meeting the unique challenges of today cannot be underscored. When COVID-19 brought in-person hospital visits and music therapy sessions to a halt, KidLinks was able to quickly adapt and transform our direct services into virtual offerings, including Telehealth music therapy, “at-home” live streaming, virtual therapeutic music performances, and engaging media designed to build social-emotional learning skills. KidLinks remains committed to meeting the needs of hospitalized and homebound children, and providing safe and fun digital experiences for families and caregivers.
