Bridges Of Love: Restoring Families Through Music

We need your help to uplift the voices of incarcerated mothers and their children through our Bridges of Love songwriting program!

This fall and winter we are connecting mothers inside the Ohio Reformatory for Women  with their kids at home. The families are working together with our team of professional music producers to write a collection of songs.

Since 2011 WAV has created over 130 songs with small groups of kids in underserved communities. LISTEN 

Our mission is to EMPOWER and AMPLIFY under represented voices through songwriting, and to create safe spaces to share, listen and heal together.

Thanks to generous support from the Ohio Arts Council we were able to launch the program. But, due to COVID,  we lost some crucial funding we were counting on.

We need your help to complete this groundbreaking project.

With your support we'll pay local creative professionals, cover the costs of the workshops and song production, and continue to support the kids with programs and resources after the workshops are over.

We'll premiere these songs as part of a special online event in February that will feature live performances of the songs on stages across our city, interviews with the mothers and children, and guest speakers that are working to help justice involved families.

Join us in amplifying these important voices, and in building new Bridges of Love!
