MAKE WAVES WITH DECIBELS

The Decibels Foundation has been hosting a week long awareness campaign since 2011. Individuals and teams have raised over $125,000 to support programs for Deaf and Hard of Hearing children & their families! These are some of the ways these funds have been used: 

  • Minute Man Arc Early Intervention Hearing Loss Program, located in Concord, MA
  • Family-Centered Outreach Events at Boston Children's Hospital
  • Transitions Program at Boston Children's Hospital
  • Decibels Scholarship in Speech-Language Pathology at Emerson College
  • Decibels Scholarship in Audiology at Northeastern University
  • Cochlear Implant Spare Parts Bank at Boston Children's Hospital
  • Sound Start Hearing Aid Loan Program at Boston Children's Hospital

HOW IT WORKS
