Operating since 1991 and officially established as a non-profit 501(c)3 in 2002, Guitar tree serves the most neglected populations. Founded by award winning advocate, humanitarian, and musician Macheis Wind, Guitar Tree goes where other agencies cannot or will not; Guitar Tree offers programs where there is the greatest need for healing and empowerment.
Guitar Tree offers therapeutic, violence prevention, and character education programs to the most neglected communities and individuals, within at-risk populations. Guitar Tree’s programs are at work in domestic violence safe houses, women’s prisons, homeless shelters, orphanages, and public school systems. Through the power of music, the message of healing, learning, and empowerment is conveyed to thousands of children, teens, women, and families across the tri-state area.
Guitar Tree has partnered with corporate foundations, businesses, and social service organizations to give children, women, and families a voice and to keep them safe.
