“The Callier Center has risen to the occasion during this tumultuous time and exceeded our expectations with telehealth speech therapy. We are so pleased to be able to continue our son’s therapy a couple times a week — picking up exactly where we left off. We have been so impressed with all of the adaptations being made.”
– Megan Wallace, grateful parent
When You Give to the Patient Emergency Fund, You Give Hope
Without communication, it is difficult to form meaningful relationships with those around us, and now more than ever, these relationships are vital to our community.
Callier exists to help people communicate and connect. For the first time since our founding in 1963, the Callier Center clinic closed to in-person appointments for two months due to the pandemic. Currently, we are seeing patients via telehealth and limited in-person appointments.
We will overcome this crisis, but we need your help.
The Challenge We Face
Philanthropy is crucial to sustaining clinical care, but especially now as we face:
- Lost Revenue as in-person care is limited
- Growing Patient Need for clinical care from those who have suffered lost income or jobs, and/or those whose insurance does not cover telehealth
- Lost Philanthropic Funding for patients in need due to the cancellation of our signature fundraising event
Your benevolence is critical to ensuring that Callier can continue to provide care to all patients, especially to those in need, both during and after COVID-19.
How You Can Help
Your support at any level can help children and adults hear and be heard, regardless of income level or insurance coverage.
