Every child deserves the chance to hear and we are here to help! It is our joy to provide hearing devices for children with hearing losses between the 10523220_987004077994726_4790729310629123485_oages of newborn and twenty years whose parents are unable to meet this special need financially.

Because of generous donations totaling more than $5 MILLION dollars since 1985, we have given over 2,500 children a grant to support their needs for hearing. The HIKE Fund, Inc. was created by Emma Tedrick and Charles Terrill as the philanthropic project of Job’s Daughters International, a girls leadership organization, to give the members a specific and unique charity to which they were able to devote their energies.
