Dr. Johnnie Sexton, Au.D., has had a vision for many years to have a permanent site for The CARE Project with 2 clear-cut purposes:
1. Family Retreats: Bringing groups of families together with one common issue (like hearing loss) to realize that they are not alone, that they have a community of support and to gain advocacy skills and confidence to continue their emotional family journeys.
2. Professional Education: bringing professionals who provide services for families with children who are deaf and hard of hearing together for continuing education opportunities on a variety of topics that would strengthen their skills and sensitize them to the family emotional journey.
We will raise the funds to make this happen. We will sell 100,000 bricks at $150 each to have the funds to purchase, renovate and construct 30 cottages. YES, WE CAN!
The bricks will be used to pave a walkway from the main buildings to the 30 cottages and create a half circle around the perimeter of the cottages, much like an embrace by those who help make this dream come true!
