Outside In's flagship Youth With Promise program remains an essential part of our core mission.

PROGRAMMING FOR SENIORS
Curtis SF Care
CURTIS KNOX showed residents at Rosemont Assisted
Living why he's called "The Entertainer."
With the demands of Santa Fe Bandstand behind us, programming at area nursing homes and assisted living facilities slowly returned to normal.  By September, we were providing music to SANTA FE CARE, KINGSTON RESIDENTIAL, 
EL CASTILLO RETIREMENT, ROSEMONT ASSISTED LIVING andTHE PASATIEMPO SENIOR CENTER.
 
This month, we'll provide holiday entertainment to over 17 different facilities in Northern New Mexico. Special thanks to Chris, Amado & Buddy Abeyta, Kevin & Karen McLaughlin and Busy McCarroll for your gift of music.
 
We're planning to add many additional facilities in the coming year, as the need is great and continually growing.  If you know someone in a nursing home or assisted living facility that might enjoy see free weekly musical performances, let us know.  We'd be glad to add that facility to our growing list.

Fiesta Float
Musician extraordinaire J. MICHAEL COMBS and 
residents from SANTA FE CARE at the annual Fiestas parade.


In September, Outside In partnered with Santa Fe Care and the Bienvenue Charitable Trust to sponsor this entry in the 2012 Historical/Hysterical Fiestas parade. The residents at the senior care facility hand made each flower and completely covered the float with their amazing handiwork. Longtime supporter and musician extraordinaire J. Michael Combs provided musical  accompaniment from the back of the pickup truck. The float went on to win the GRAND PRIZE for BEST FIESTAS FLOAT! Santa Fe Care donated the $200 prize to Outside In. What an incredible day!
