The Children’s Hearing Institute has provided focused, goal oriented, modest grants and funding to non-profit groups and agencies that strive to improve the quality of life for deaf and hard of hearing individuals in the tri-state area.
For the past several years The Children’s Hearing Institute has been an avid sponsor of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Awareness Day at Citifield. Every September we provide approximately 1,000 tickets for deaf and hard of hearing children to attend a New York Mets game.
CHI also continues to sponsor a Walk Team in support of the Hearing Loss Associations of America’s WALK4HEARING. Adults and children of all ages are invited to join patients, friends and families as we walk together to end the stigma of hearing loss and help provide support and resources for hearing loss prevention and awareness programs.
In addition, The Institute funds several events at smaller organizations within the tri-state area to bring awareness to issues that affect deaf and hard of hearing individuals.
