Stories demonstrating impact will aid in fundraising and support. Please provide story leads about one or two individuals whose lives have been touched or transformed by this project.
Stories about Holocaust survivors, older adults with a history of trauma, and family caregivers are preferred, but you may also include inspirational moments about trainers, trainees, or service providers. These individuals must be willing to speak to JFNA about the impact of this project. Please make sure you have permission to share these stories. Stories may be used for fundraising, media, or advocacy.
Example of a Story Lead:
"Mrs. Levin, 89, is a low-income Holocaust survivor who rarely left her home. We enrolled her in our music therapy group, arranged for accessible transportation to group meetings, and installed a ramp by her front door so that she can comfortably move her walker in and out of her home. After a few months in the music therapy program, Mrs. Levin told her case manager that she is happier and feels connected to her community for the first time in a decade."
