The Poetry Partner Program

The Poetic Medicine Institute funds poetry and healing projects that make a difference in the hearts and lives of people throughout the United States!

This key part of our mission is made possible by donations from people like you who support our mission.

Through our Poetry Partners program, we fund poet-healers who serve people with a wide-range of needs.  Poetic Medicine makes a difference in the lives of people:

  • with traumatic brain injury
  • who are immigrants and refugee youth
  • with mental health challenges,
  • with physical and intellectual differences
  • in prison
  • overcoming drug and alcohol addiction
  • who are homeless
  • Veterans and their families
  • children in hospital
  • multi-ethnic, communities of color
  • who are marginalized

And we are always grateful for financial help, for your prayers and encouraging words.



We are proud of our efficient use of money and the greatness of heart we are catalysts for—touching individuals and enriching communities.
