I have been very fortunate to do quite a bit of volunteer work for Beginnings as well as learn about them through my own hearing loss experience and watching them interact with the families. The staff there is just amazing and so caring and concerned about these families. They definitely are there to help in a very worthwhile cause and are all very dedicated to making sure they provide great information and resources for these parents. I would definitely recommend them to every parent who has a child with hearing loss. They are genuinely there for them from birth through age 21. They are an amazing organization.
