“We were flooded with emotions as we struggled to process what we were being told. Our child who had entered this world just days before, with focus and awareness in his eyes, had never heard our voices.”
— Chris, parent of HOPE preschooler

Dear Spokane HOPE Supporter,
Imagine being a new parent and learning that your baby is deaf. Imagine the fear of not knowing anything about raising a child with hearing loss.
Because of you, Spokane HOPE is the lifeline for these parents.
Starting at diagnosis, HOPE offers families easy-to-understand information about hearing loss, training to develop language with their baby, and guidance through a web of medical appointments during the initial months of uncertainty.
Your support makes it happen! HOPE delivers comprehensive early intervention services to children with hearing loss from birth to age five. During this time of rapid brain development, HOPE builds and strengthens children’s listening and speaking skills so they can be ready for kindergarten, learning alongside their hearing peers. With oral language, children with hearing loss are no longer isolated.
Chris and Janelle are grateful for your generosity. “Our son has consistently achieved milestones that we never thought possible. His first words were mama, ball, and ho-ho-ho! Now, at age three, he talks nonstop. We can’t begin to express our sincere gratitude for giving our child HOPE.”
Thank you for giving language to the local children served by HOPE.
