Songs of Hope

A Life of Joy Foundation signature event, Songs of Hope is a faith-based benefit concert and outreach program supporting all those impacted by suicide, depression and other mental health challenges. With the healing embrace of song, prayer and testimony, we’re bringing HOPE and light to those who are struggling, to survivors of suicide loss, and to their steadfast supporters.


Join us as we #BreaktheStigma surrounding suicide and mental health, and walk away with holistic perspectives and integrated resources for more comprehensive treatment of mind, body and spirit.
