For a child learning to communicate, every single word is magic.


You can give a child a brighter future when you support the therapeutic and educational programs provided by HASA. Your gift can help a child develop the language skills necessary for self-confidence, self-expression, school success, and individual well-being  -  whether the child is deaf or hard of hearing or struggling with autism, developmental delays, fluency, literacy, voice disorders, or speech-language differences.  

Since 1926, HASA has been committed to the speech, language and hearing needs of Baltimore’s children. With generous community support this year:

  • An educational child care program for children with and without communication challenges was launched, expanding services to a broader community and providing a language-based curriculum.
  • ASL classes were offered to babies, toddlers, and children throughout the year to improve language skills for children as well as their parents who attended the classes with them.
  • Scholarship funds were made available to 10% of Gateway students through the Frances Scholarship Endowment Fund and the Goelet Scholars Program.
  • Financial assistance has been offered to families in need so that better speech, language, hearing, and learning are accessible to all.

No matter a child’s communication challenge, HASA can help. And so can you.

Please consider a gift to HASA’s Annual Fund, a major source of funding that helps provide special education, audiology, speech-language therapy and sign language interpreting services to more than 4,000 children and adults each year. Your gift ensures accessibility to quality intervention, therapeutic and support services to all families  - no matter their ability to pay. Your donation improves HASA’s ability to make hearing, speaking, understanding and learning accessible to everyone who comes to us for care.
