"Fresh Breath of Hope"

We are so excited for and honored by the creation of "Fresh Breath of Hope," a musical composition by Nicky Sohn featuring Mary Grace Johnson as part of the Da Camera of Houston Young Artist Program! A fellowship program for emerging professional musicians designed to provide career-expanding experiences and training to the next generation of artists, encouraging them to create music for the community throughout their careers, and offer underserved audiences exposure to impactful music and talented performers. Second-year fellows in the program complete a community project, working with partners organizations to create and implement initiatives using music to enrich the lives of underserved Houstonians.

DACAMERA second-year fellows, violinist Mary Grace Johnson and composer Nicky Sohn, partnered with the Women’s Home to create a piece of music directly inspired by the women in the Residential Treatment Program and their stories. The result, entitled “Fresh Breath of Hope,” is described by the composer:

“'Fresh Breath of Hope' was inspired by the conversations that Mary Grace and I had with the people at the Houston Women’s Home, a place that strengthens women and supports them as they reclaim their stability.

Entropy and disorder are everywhere—a law of existence—in all forms unpredictable and harsh. Likewise, each person at the Women’s Home had a completely new story to tell and a different means of getting to where they were. However, in this community, everyone shared one common theme—shining in a place of darkness, a hope for the future. One client described the home as a “fresh breath of hope”, breathing color into what was once a bleak outlook. Her passion and sincerity in which she told us her journey reflected to me that within this world of chaos ceaselessly unfolding, there are still havens that point us to the light.”

The Jewish Teen Philanthropy Initiative (JTPI) aims to inspire a diverse group of Jewish high school students to make a real difference in the greater Houston Jewish Community. Participants raise and allocate funds to address real community issues through a consensus building and project-based learning model. Teens meet monthly to research and explore organizations and causes they wish to support, learn about the process of grant making, hear from local philanthropists, and explore their own Jewish values.

The Women's Home is honored to have just received a grant from JTPI for the Children’s Play Therapy Room at our WholeLife® Service Center. Thank you so much to this remarkable group, both for our award and for working to make our whole community stronger!

Pictured is the Jewish Teen Philanthropy Initiative – First Year Cohort who recommended our grant for support.

I just discovered your organization - a month after my precious daughter passed away due to and accidental alcohol overdose at the age of 28. I believe an organization like yours would have been her saving grace.
Women Cultivating Greatness is so happy that we have the opportunity to honor Ms. Anna Dragsbaek for her work in the Houston community and beyond. Come out and celebrate with us: Click here: https://www.womencultivatinggreatness.com/inaugural-luncheon-2018/
I would have to say this is one of the best facilities in Houston for Single Woman. I have worked with them for the past 12 years and have had graduates from their program. If you are serious about working through your issues, I would thoroughly recommend The Woman's Home.
