"Shelter Music Boston presents classical chamber music concerts of the highest artistic standards in Boston homeless shelters and sheltering environments.
Current research documents the positive effects of music on physical and mental health and supports its use as a complementary tool in social service delivery; live concerts in shelters enhance the effectiveness of traditional interventions.
For the homeless, an interactive, respectful concert bringing the therapeutic power of classical music directly into the shelter can provide hope, a sense of self-worth, and renewed energy to address the challenges of homelessness."
