Quincy is a spirited five year-old with vision problems so severe that his teachers must hold his hand and guide him at school.

Jessica had suffered abuse at the hands of her parents. In foster care, her emotional outlet has become her music—so much so— that she routinely borrows a guitar from friends and her teacher, even if only for a few hours, in order to play. Jessica is an excellent student in her magnet school who finds joy in writing and performing songs for her church congregation. When Jessica’s Social Worker reached out to The Children's Trust Fund, we agreed that Jessica deserved her own guitar. Someday, she may inspire and move audiences when she takes her bow from center stage.
