Jail Guitar Doors USA got started in 2009 and quickly became a leading music-based rehabilitation program, with a far-reaching agenda and a reach no less, our model has a demonstrated successful record. Now in multiple states, inside prisons, jails, and juvenile detention facilities around the country, and constantly seeking to expand, we remain committed to spreading the power of rehabilitation through the arts, and through music, in particular.

 In addition to our facilitated rehabilitation programs, we have donated thousands of guitars, for the sake of bringing music into places desperately in need of music.
