The Speech & Hearing Center was established in 1953 to serve children and adults with communication disorders. For 60 years, the organization has striven to ensure that all individuals with speech or hearing impairments have access to the services and equipment they need, regardless of their ability to fully afford services. We provide screenings for early identification when appropriate for children 0-5 years old and we offer a sliding fee scale for those who income-qualify, and work with several national and local programs to assist low-income individuals with hearing aid purchase.

For those who can self-pay, a portion of every service or product purchase goes back to assist those in our community who would otherwise not be able to afford therapy or hearing devices. 

Our Mission

To enhance quality of life through better communication.


Professional, courteous, caring, and more than that, the staff of the Speech and Hearing Center have become friends. They have enabled me to enjoy life as it was before hearing loss. It’s wonderful to hear the birds and insects again. - W. Scott Leach
