Donations to CHSC enable us to provide free and reduced cost programs and services to our community. Support is given in many ways: through our Annual Fund, special events, memorials and tributes, and planned giving. We are grateful to all of our donors for helping us achieve our vision of a community in which every individual communicates effectively.

  • This past year, we provided over $1 million in low-to-no cost care to the community.
  • 82% of the money we raise goes to direct services.
  • Because of our generous donors, last year 82% of hearing aids and 90% of speech services were provided at low-to-no cost to clients.
  • Fundraising efforts allow us to provide 100% free services from our Community Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

Drusilla Marshal’s daughter, Kassidy, was born pre-mature. At six-months-old, her beginning speech sounds seemed normal. But by the time Kassidy turned one, Drusilla noticed her daughter’s speech was hard to understand. With the help of a CHSC speech therapist and the Help Me Grow program, Kassidy was able to learn to communicate using an Augmentative/Alternative Communication (AAC) device.

Deaf in China, Rose Chau came to the United States only able to sign and communicate in Cantonese. Now, with the ongoing support of CCDHH, she bravely faces new life challenges including raising her autistic son. Rose is very grateful for the kindness and support she has received at the Center.

As a hearing loss client, Sauda Sabur is pretty typical. Like most people, she assumed hearing loss was a natural part of aging, and was something she would deal with eventually – but kept putting it off. Sauda readily admits that CHSC was the best resource for her – and says, “You really don’t know how much you’re not hearing until you put these [hearing aids] in your ear.”
