Miracle-Ear has unveiled a new strategy for its non-profit organization. The Miracle-Ear Children’s Foundation has been renamed the Miracle-Ear Foundation and will now focus its efforts on both adults and underprivileged children.
Started in 1990 by Miracle-Ear founder, Ken Dalhberg, the Foundation was originally created to serve the needs of underprivileged children’s hearing health care. Since then, the Miracle-Ear Children’s Foundation has donated more than 6,500 hearing aids to over 4,100 children nationwide.
“The Miracle-Ear Children’s Foundation, working in cooperation with Miracle-Ear centers, has impacted many communities across America,” said Jenni Hargraves, Miracle-Ear Foundation Director. “But after further analyzing the environment, we found there’s an even greater need to help children and adults alike, so that has driven the change.”
With the launch of the Miracle-Ear Foundation comes an updated hearing aid program, Gift of Sound. This program serves both children and adults with hearing loss who have limited income and have exhausted all resources to improve their hearing health. Individuals who meet specific income and hearing loss requirements can work with any one of the 1,200 locations nationwide to receive hearing aids free of cost.
