We raise the necessary funds to provide HOH/deaf children/teens the tools and resources to help them find personal success. Whether that be through resources such as FM systems or hearing aids, through resources such as speech therapy or learning ASL, or through learning about Jesus through Deaf Young Life events and camps.

Through our social outings and fundraisers, we have raised funds for our mission, but also brought the community together. Every event we are a part of is fully deaf and hard-of-hearing accessible with live captioning and interpreters. Through our partnerships with industry professionals, ministry leaders, educators and the hearing loss community we have been able to bring about change in an unprecedented way.

We provide 6 areas of resources:

  • Hearing aids
  • FM systems
  • ASL lessons (family or individual) 
  • Speech therapy
  • Deaf Young Life Registration for Christian-based summer camps
