Alice & Sheryl Cooper’s Solid Rock

To Rock & Roll Hall of Fame legend Alice Cooper and his wife Sheryl, every teen is at risk.

Inside every teen, there is a purpose, it just needs a place and some time for them to figure out what that purpose is.


Founded by the Coopers in 1995, Solid Rock’s primary mission is to make an everlasting difference in the lives of teens by helping them meet the spiritual, economical, physical, and social needs of at-risk teens in the community by offering a safe, engaging environment during non-school hours –a time when they are most vulnerable to drugs, violence, and gangs.

Maintaining “a teen’s worst enemy is too much time on their hands,” Solid Rock provides the music, arts, vocational programs and fellowship that challenge teens to discover their passion through music, dance, self-expression, and creativity.

Founder and entertainer Danny Thomas opened the doors to St. Jude in 1962 with the dream that “no child should die in the dawn of life.”

St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.

Forever Young Foundation

Founded in 1993 by NFL Hall of Famer Steve Young, Forever Young Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization focused on passing on hope and resources for the development, strength, and education of children.

The Foundation serves children facing significant physical, emotional, and financial challenges by providing them with academic, athletic, and therapeutic opportunities currently unavailable to them.

Forever Young Foundation primarily focuses our efforts in Northern California, Arizona, Utah, and Ghana, Africa.

What is Sophie’s Place?

Sophie’s Place is a Forever Young Initiative, established in loving memory of singer, songwriter, and friend, Sophie Barton.
These dedicated spaces are music therapy rooms built in children’s hospitals that treat young people suffering from pain, chronic illness, and serious injury.
They provide an integrative medical approach to prescriptive medicine; assisting physical therapy through body movement, alleviating pain, and supporting cognitive health by rewiring the brain synapses. While most people know music has an extraordinary power to bring comfort and peace to the soul, recent clinical studies have proven that music therapy offers a new evidence-based, integrative medical approach in treating these young hospital patients.
 Music Changes Everything!
