ANNOUNCEMENT on 11/28/22:
It is with much sadness and only after much deliberation that we pause accepting any new referrals for our Parent Education Program at this time. We've had an overwhelming number of new referrals in the last year and, as we depend on grant funding and donations, we have not been able to meet capacity. We are working hard to submit new grant requests and donation requests so that we can hire more staff to serve all of the families in need. Until that time, we ask that you please submit your information which will be added to our Parent Education Waiting List. We will contact you as soon as we can move through each referral starting in early 2023. Families we're currently serving will continue to receive our support as normal.

Parent Counseling - Parents are the key to their deaf & hard of hearing child's journey. We support parents in this journey by means of education, support, and empowerment, free of charge.

Services for Child Care Providers: We provide hearing screenings and Endeavors-approved training to child care providers across SC, free of charge.

Advocacy & Policy: We collaborate with legislators, agencies, and influencers to promote policies that benefit those who are deaf and/or hard of hearing.

Technical Assistance & Training: We share best practice strategies for hearing loss with pediatricians, educators, and the community.

Awareness & Education: We use social media, our website, media, events, and exhibiting to foster awareness and action.
