We moved to Denver 45 years ago so our son, who is profoundly deaf, could enter the Auditory-Verbal therapy program. 41 years ago I helped statrt the Listen Foundation so that others could benefit from the therapy and also learn to listen and speak. He does not need an interpreter, he is very oral and is valued as an employee where he has become proficient at supervising crews that build ponds, waterfalls, patios, etc. He now has two cochlear implants that have made all the difference in the world in how he listens. We are grateful for the program started by Doreen Pollack and now carried on by the Listen Foundation that funds children whose families do not have the financial ability to provide this opportunity for their child. That is why I have been a volunteer or Board member for these many years.

Over the years I have seen the results of this type of therapy and the grateful appreciation of parents who never thought their child would be able to talk to them.

We need more people to join us in marketing and promoting the fact that children who are deaf can learn to listen and talk with modern technology and specialized therapy.

The members of the board and those volunteering for the foundation are wonderful people to work with. They are skilled a passionate about helping children with hearing loss meet their communication expectations. Children with hearing loss in Colorado couldn't ask for a better advocacy group. It's the only foundation in our area that assists families in helping their children learn to listen and produce natural spoken language.

As an audiologist I've seen personally the children who graduate from this program vs. those who parents chose a different road. "Listen" parents work very hard initially but their children are more independent in the long run.

I would give them a larger voice. Currently the population of kids who need assistance isn't large there are so many more families who need advocacy and education. I would give them a larger voice so they could reach more families.

I've been involved with the foundation for over 5 years. It is the only one of it's kind in our region and imperative for families of hearing impaired children. It's goal is to fund families who can not afford therapy to teach their child to use what hearing they have to maximize their spoken language and listening skills. It's amazing what they can accomplish in 5 years! Imagine 5 years of work for a lifetime of independence.......

Watching children graduate from the program is so rewarding. It's exciting to hear parents tell their stories of how their children are succeeding!!!!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

It's uniqueness as a non-profit. They make such a huge difference to such a specific population.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The Executive Director is amazing! She is efficient and personable. People love working with her.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Reach more children and have them be fully funded (100% of the time). They could also educate the public on their mission.
