“At times, it is scary to not know how to help my son. I feel great relief in working with HOPE.” — Miles’ dad May...
“Because of HOPE, children with hearing loss will be able to develop the gifts they were given. I didn’t have HOPE when I was growing up deaf, and I missed out on so much of life.”
— HOPE’s friend Rachel, reading with one of our preschoolers
Dear Spokane HOPE Supporter,
A childhood diagnosis of hearing loss brings immediate risk for developmental and language delay and social isolation. When Rachel was a child, she did not have access to HOPE’s specialized Listening and Spoken Language services to help overcome these barriers.
She shared with us recently, “I was not connected to people, and I felt lonely, even in school. My life would have been so much different with HOPE. I would have been successful and had a real career. Instead, I was isolated, and I didn’t even know what my gifts were.”
Because her life was deeply affected by not accessing crucial services in her earliest years of learning language, Rachel is a great supporter of our programs. She knows first-hand the value of HOPE, especially with fully accessing hearing after receiving a cochlear implant at 49.
Your financial gift makes all the difference for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers who need the services available at HOPE. Because of you, our Teachers of the Deaf can help children like Rachel communicate with their families for the first time, connect with their friends, and achieve their dreams.
The children and families who depend on HOPE are grateful that you believe in them. And so are we!
