Since 2011, Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute has pioneered a lullaby program that pairs skilled musicians with expectant or recent mothers, many of whom are raising young families under stressful conditions: single parenthood, temporary housing, or incarceration. This report shares early, qualitative findings from 10 lullaby projects in the New York City region. The report, Lullaby: Being Together, Being Well, calls on cultural organizations to invest in the well-being of young families.

Read what the Lullaby Project has been able to accomplish and consider what your organization might do to change these harsh realities.
