The Santa Clarita Coalition is a 501c3 (pending) established to connect other Santa Clarita non-profits and stakeholders in a number of support areas with our primary focus in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Initially we are focusing on two areas, Music (drum) therapy with Remo Drums Health Rhythms Program and Disaster Preparedness. As we evolve we’ve identified two other areas we will focus on, teen-age runaways and veterans.
Remo Drums has created ground breaking therapies through the use of their drums with various populations including our public schools, non-profits (ie. Action, Domestic Violence, Boys & Girls Club, Senior Center, Child & Family Center to mention a few.) We have been facilitating programs with these and other organizations, assist in raising funds to support the programs and purchase supplies along with training facilitators at each of the organizations.
Santa Clarita Coalition – SCV Coalition
Our coalition serves as a conduit to connect various Santa Clarita non-profit stakeholders using drum and music therapy as a tool to assist their at risk populations. Our mission is to advance the use of music and rhythm as a life enhancement activity whenever and wherever it is needed. We have been working with local organizations whose at risk populations include Alzheimer and Dementia Patients (Senior Center), Domestic Violence (SCV Domestic Violence Center), Drug and Alcohol (Action Family Counseling), Autism and Post Traumatic Stress victims.
In addition to our music therapy and disaster preparedness initiative, In the future, we envision expanding into two other areas under our coalition umbrella.
In recent years, KHTS has become a conduit for families who have a missing teenager. We envision the coalition, becoming a catalyst for support for the families, through counseling, coordination with law enforcement, assisting in getting the word out to locate the missing teen and to offer family intervention once the teen is reunited.
Through our work establishing SCV Habitat for Heroes we uncovered a need to assist our local Santa Clarita Veterans with a local one-stop information/assistance organization. Its purpose will be to navigate through all the local services available to our veterans and to connect all our local stakeholders and relevant non-profits.
