DEI's Forte for Children Beneficiaries
Boys & Girls Clubs
In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.
Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.
Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow – all while having fun. They are truly The Positive Place For Kids.

Established in 1978, Casa de Amparo (Home of Protection) is recognized as a leader in treating and preventing child abuse and neglect in San Diego County and beyond, with locations in Oceanside and San Marcos. The non-profit organization annually serves 850 Casa Kids, from prenatal to 24 years old, as well as 675 families and 450 adults, through six integrated programs that promote healing, growth, and healthy relationships.
Casa de Amparo incorporates music throughout all of its programs, from preschool to young adults. For example, Residential Services offers a therapeutic rehabilitation program, which includes a focus on music and art.
The Sound Start Foundation is another way of emboldening the mindset to Bring Joy to the World Through Sound.
To advance our undertaking so the next generation has a path to explore the wonders of making music, we’re donating 10,000 instruments to children across the world by 2020.
