The Pluffs

Our daughters were both born prematurely and the extensive testing that they received uncovered that they each had moderate to severe hearing loss in both ears. During our quest for answers after this discovery, we were struck by the frequency of hearing loss in children and the shortage of services and assistive technology available to families. Access to the early intervention program was key to helping our girls to adapt so well.

We established a field-of-interest fund at the Community Foundation so that other families will have an easier time finding the support and answers they need to give their special needs children a strong start. The Community Foundation's professional fund management and knowledge of nonprofits gives us the comfort that our fund will be able to help others for generations to come.

Our girls wouldn't be who they are today without the services they have been fortunate to receive. The Community Foundation is helping us provide other children with the invaluable gift of hearing.
