The Lake Drive Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to ensuring children with hearing loss in The Sound Start Program get the quality services they need during the irretrievably precious first three years of life to achieve in the mainstream world.
Sound Start is the early intervention program of the award winning Lake Drive School for Children Who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Lake Drive offers New Jersey’s most comprehensive continuum of educational opportunities for children with hearing loss, serving 260 children from birth to high school graduation. Since 1969, Sound Start has helped more than one thousand children from throughout northern and central New Jersey fulfill their potential.
But there are no funds from the Department of Education for services for children with hearing loss until the child turns three. State early intervention funding and family cost shares cover less than one third of Sound Start's intensive and comprehensive therapies. It takes generous gifts from donors like you to fill the gap and ensure these children have the chance to fulfill their potential.
We hope you'll join the Lake Drive Foundation in supporting The Sound Start Program for infants and toddlers with hearing loss in our community. Every child deserves a sound start.
