You helped write our story...
...two years ago when we noticed that our two-year-old twin boys weren't communicating like other kids their age. They would cry, laugh and babble to each other but wouldn't say any words. A program at Rochester Hearing and Speech Center diagnosed the boys and started speech therapy immediately. Now our boys are talking up a storm, just like any other kid their age.
Giving Babies the Best Start
Research has shown that children who receive the best possible start in life are more likely to achieve their full potential.

Your support for the Community Fund is providing In-home Parenting Support and Education programs to help moms and dads develop appropriate nurturing skills and reduce child abuse, and Early Screening and Intervention Programs for early recognition, diagnosis and treatment of special needs.
