SIMS Foundation

Born out of tragedy to help thousands, The SIMS Foundation was founded by Sims’ grieving father Don Ellison, Austin Rehearsal Complex (ARC) co-owners Don Harvey & Wayne Nagel, recording artist Alejandro Escovedo and attorney Walter Taylor. Together, they galvanized Austin’s close-knit music community to create a unique organization offering mental health services to local musicians.  The SIMS Foundation continues to provide life-saving services to musicians and their families when they need them most.
