The mission of Hugworks is to provide healing experiences for the special needs of children of all ages through performing arts and media. Tax ID 75-1786051


Hugworks' staff, volunteers, and apprentices provide Therapeutic Music Entertainment programs in children's hospitals, summer medical camps, and other community settings in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, throughout Texas, and across the nation. Developed by Jim Newton and the Hugworks team, Therapeutic Music Entertainment (TME) is a musical performance or activity which, by virtue of its diversion, amusement and/or engaging qualities, promotes healing.Whether a child's challenge is medical, emotional-psychological, or abuse, our songs help them express feelings in healthy ways, build self-esteem, accept their own and others' differences, relax, be silly, have fun, and heal.
