The HRA Foundation (HRAF) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2005 to provide music and arts education to under-served children, including those with terminal illness or special needs in the Los Angeles area.

Our mission is to:

  • Bring quality music and arts instruction to at risk youth and children in need.
  • Promote the growth and development of children by teaching them¬† to write, record and perform their own original music as well as the creation of original films and art. HRAF strives to supply the need with whatever creative outlet is most desired.
  • Help these young artists to gain confidence in an artistic aspect of their lives, which then grows into other skills and other goals, be they academic or personal.
  • Foster a community that actively supports their children’s individual creative voices.
  • Provide a unique hands-on volunteering opportunity for future leaders, teachers and artists.


HRAF is also a mobile program that travels to schools, hospitals, homes and community centers. The Foundation provides their innovative “Unleash Your Voice” assemblies free of charge to Title I schools in the Los Angeles area. All of this is in addition to scholarships for individual students to participate in the HRA After-School Program. Instruction and musical instruments are given to each child at no cost to their families.



Now, however, The HRA Foundation has also broadened it’s goals to reach a larger group of young people. We have also brought our creative immersion programs to organizations that serve groups with many other special needs.
