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 ages of newborn and twenty years whose parents are unable to meet this special need financially. Our application provides additional information and details. We look forward to serving you.
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.
Caitlin Hawkins and her family were presented with a HIKE grant on Saturday, October 24, 2015 in Chesapeake, VA. Bethel #37 hosted the award during a reception following their Grand Visitation. Caitlin also received a gift card to Barnes & Noble Bookstore.
On Thursday, October 22, 2015, Dr. Sharon Macner of Champlain Valley Audiology in Plattsburgh, NY fit Taylor Allen for her hearing aids, purchased with a grant awarded by the HIKE Fund, Inc. (and funded in part by the family’s church). The whole family was present to support Taylor as she starts her journey to better hearing.
Congratulations, Taylor, and many thanks to Champlain Valley Audiology for their advocacy and assistance to the Allen Family. It was an exciting and happy day for everyone!
Illinois Job’s Daughters made a HIKE presentation to a young man who no one knew was deaf until he was 5 years old. Today, Devante is a successful college student and athlete who will use the HIKE grant for a new communication device to advance his studies. Special thanks to Bethel #55 for hosting and Bethel #65, Columbia, for attending the presentation.
