When your child is diagnosed with hearing loss, it can be a stressful time when you are inundated with new information. As parents, relatives and professionals who work with deaf/hard of hearing children, our Board is uniquely aware of the challenges families face when a child has been identified with hearing loss. For over 60 years, FHSR has been dedicated to providing support to both the child and the family through our wrap around services.

MUSIC TO MY EARS (MTME) SCHOLARSHIP
FHSR honored the Foundation’s 60th anniversary with the creation of the Music To My Ears Scholarship Program (MTME). This program provides a year of tuition-free music classes for deaf and hard of hearing children in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. FHSR is proud to partner with The Merit School of Music and The Old Town School of Folk Music to provide music enrichment classes for children up to four years of age and instrument lessons for children up to 10 years of age. The MTME program represents FHSR’s unwavering commitment to be the leader in programs that enable children living with hearing loss to be on par with their hearing peers.
