Mission and Vision
Aid the Silent is a Texas-based nonprofit that helps deaf and hard-of-hearing children and teens receive equal access to opportunity by providing financial assistance to enhance communication methods; gain access to education resources; and to improve their overall health, both mental and physical, that leads to individual growth socially, educationally and spiritually.
Aid the Silent strives for equality for the deaf community.
We raise the necessary funds to provide HOH/deaf children/teens the tools and resources to help them find personal success. Through our social outings and fundraisers, we have raised funds for our mission, but also brought the community together. Every event we are a part of is fully deaf and hard-of-hearing accessible with live captioning and interpreters. Through our partnerships with industry professionals, ministry leaders, educators and the hearing loss community, we have been able to bring about change in an unprecedented way.
We provide 6 areas of resources:
Hearing aids, FM systems, ASL lessons (family or individual), Speech therapy, Deaf Young Life, Registration for Christian-based summer camps
Aid the Silent also considers applications for financial support from educators who work with deaf/hard-of-hearing children/teens ages 2-18:
-On necessary independent speech therapy sessions or American Sign Language lessons
-On language acquisition and literacy
-In the study and performance of music
