Keeping the Momentum
Pivoting our program to best suit the safety needs of our members. As you probably already know, Covid has changed almost everything in our daily lives, to how we interact to how we plan for daily living and learning. This change has significantly affected members of the developmental disability community. Our members have not been able to interact with one another in person, maintain social or educational structured learning practices, nor have they been able to participate in our programs. In response to this, Momentum Choir has developed a program to best suit the needs and keep our community safe. "Keeping the Momentum" is an innovative and engaging virtual program designed to maintain the Music Therapy program Momentum Choir is founded on. Thanks to a grant provided by the Emergency Community Support Fund through United Way Niagara, and funded in part by the Government of Canada, we have been able to develop this virtual choir practice program.
However, we are still in need of some financial support to make this program a success.
