The Caroline Bass Fund

The Caroline Bass Fund was established to support the needs of children with hearing loss and their families.  The children and families served are in the care of the Department of Otolaryngology and Communication Enhancement at Children’s Hospital Boston.  The Caroline Bass Fund and the Decibels Foundation meet the needs of these children in ways that are not provided by their health insurance, school, or existing agencies.  Projects are proposed by clinicians and reviewed by a volunteer committee of community leaders who determine whether the proposed projects support the mission of the Fund, monitor progress, and plan for the future.
