The KEYS Program



Welcome to the KEYS Program!

Since 1993, the KEYS Program has been delivering music, hope and smiles to children impacted by cancer and serious illnesses through its award-winning music outreach, family respite day and sibling support programs.


After's all about the smiles!

KEYS Kids Network at Russell Sage College!

The talented students at Russell Sage College's Musical Theatre, Art and Creative Arts Therapy programs in Troy have been writing songs, creating skits, and building a colorful, kid-friendly set to film episodes for our KEYS Kids Network.  They are filming this semester and we can’t wait for you to meet the awesome cast of characters...and puppets...they have added to the program to make the KEYS Kids Network even more fun and interactive for our KEYS kids.  We are thrilled to partner with Sage College & these extraordinary students to create smiles!
