The Need for Clarke Services
Clarke provides children who are deaf or hard of hearing with the listening, learning and spoken language skills they need to succeed and thrive in an environment that’s right for them. We level the playing field for children and expand their opportunities for inclusivity.
Clarke firmly believes that a family’s financial resources should not be a barrier to their child’s access to our programs and services. Many of the families we serve come from low-to-moderate income zip codes, as defined by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and are unable to afford out-of-pocket costs.
The Cost for Clarke Services
Anecdotally, for every dollar Clarke spends on programs and services, we earn 80 cents in tuition, fees and program grants. These gaps are filled by generous supporters who recognize the value of investing in the independent future of Clarke students. Your support has an enduring value and makes an impact that will last Clarke students and their families for a lifetime.
Hear the Impact
