The Columbus Foundation Supports Dublin Expansion

By Gretchen Colon,

Columbus Speech & Hearing Center is expanding to Dublin and opening our new audiology clinic for adults!

We are incredibly grateful to our philanthropic partner, The Columbus Foundation, for the financial support to make this new expansion possible.

“Columbus Speech & Hearing Center provides crucial services to those with communications challenges – both receptive and expressive, and for people of all ages,” shares Emily Savors, Director of Grants Management at The Columbus Foundation.

Expanding into this new area will help Columbus Speech & Hearing Center serve thousands more adults with hearing loss by providing hearing evaluationshearing aid fittings and service custom hearing protection to those in need.

“The ability to generate earned revenue is a vehicle to support subsidized services,” Savors explains. “So, in addition to being closer to a segment of the population in need of services, this office will generate income to support other services at the agency.”

Columbus Speech & Hearing Center, a nonprofit organization serving central Ohio since 1923, counts heavily on the philanthropic support from generous donors to serve individuals and children with hearing loss and speech challenges. 

You are invited to join The Columbus Foundation and other supporters to help contribute to the Dublin audiology clinic with a financial gift. You have the opportunity to give a children a voice and provide improved hearing to individuals in need.
