4. Mary Free Bed has been awarded a $10,000 grant for its music therapy program.
The money was awarded by the National Endowment for the arts, and Mary Free Bed is one of more than 100 organizations across the nation to get the grant.
The rehabilitation center first started its Music Therapy program in 2018, and the lone full-time therapist, Peter Muszkiewicz, has worked with hundreds of patients.
Mary Free Bed hopes to use the money to add another part-time music therapist to meet the demand.
**It was previously reported that Mary Free Bed received a $1.7 million grant. The rehabilitation center says they received $10,000 as part of a $1.7 million grant awarded to other investigations. We apologize for the error.**
