“Being homeless or trafficked creates a tremendous amount of trauma in someone’s life,” said Jordon Johnson, executive director of Life House.

“I think music and the arts are a great way to process some of what’s going on in anyone’s life, but especially our young people like, it’s a fruitful creative outlet,” a- he declared.

According to Johnson, music is already an important way for young people to share stories and experiences at their youth center on First Street.

Their celebration of success event Thursday at the DECC will also serve as a fundraiser for the recording studio.
