At Ohio Valley Voices, we call it “the walk.” “The walk” is the moment when a new family walks through our building for the first time. They hear the laughter and voices of deaf children and they are amazed.
They grow even more awestruck and excited with each hopeful step. Giving a ray of hope to these families, and giving their children the opportunity to learn is what we do at Ohio Valley Voices.
Every family deserves a walk.
Thanks to our many contributors we are able to give families of deaf children the hope they are searching for, and the solace that they are doing the best for their child.
Ohio Valley Voices is a 501c (3) organization. We rely on contributions to accomplish our mission: teaching deaf children to listen and speak.
Ohio Valley Voices relies on donations from the community to keep our doors open and our children smiling, listening, and talking. Every year we hold a campaign with the goal of raising over $50,000 for our programs. Please consider making a gift today!
