Why Give? Why Now? - A Message From The CEO

I have truly loved my career as audiologist practicing in Denver for almost 40 years. I feel especially privileged to be the CEO of the Marion Downs Center now, when the community needs our help the most. For the past almost 2 years, many of us have struggled with the loneliness and sadness that results from a decrease in human communication and connection.

Many in our community are challenged with communication obstacles daily and need our help to optimize their connection to others. A core value of the MDC is to provide exceptional services to all we serve.

Every day we provide services to many who have a choice in hearing and speech service, but did you know that individuals request financial assistance every day? Many in our community do not have the financial resources to obtain needed audiology, speech, and education services they urgently need to bridge communication challenges. With generous help from our donors and volunteers, we are there for them!

I urge you to consider a financial donation to the MDC on Colorado Gives Day. Every donation is a meaningful gift! We will continue to provide underserved individuals and families hearing and speech assessments, hearing aids, cochlear implant services, speech therapy, and educational programming with your help! Communication and human connection is especially needed at this time. Please help us help them!- Dr. Sandra Abbott Gabbard, PhD
