"'The real benefit of the drum line, as I see it, is the completely new, 100% positive identity the drum line gives each participant. They have a skill — something they feel they are actually good at — that sets them apart from their distinction as 'formerly homeless youth'."
- Michael Stevens, Instructor, Dignity Housing, Philadelphia, PA
"Music is a universal art form that transcends the walls of prison and the confines of geography or socio-economic status. It brings individuals together in community. The instruments have allowed us to continue our mission of transforming individuals and community through the arts. We are very grateful for the support of The Fender Music Foundation."
