CARE is a multidimensional tool that addresses the grief associated with hearing loss for individuals, families, communities and professionals.
The CARE Project is a North Carolina based nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing hope to families who have children and/or adults with hearing challenges through counseling experiences aimed at the processing of the emotional stages of grief.
Family retreats are organized, funded and hosted by the CARE Project across North Carolina. These retreats are 2-3 day experiences full of informational seminars, family support and bonding time, social activities and breakout groups for moms, dads, siblings and children who are deaf and hard of hearing.
Dr. Johnnie Sexton, Au,D., Founder and Executive Director has had a vision to build a permanent site for The CARE Project with 3 clear-cut purposes:
Provide accommodations for families that require overnight stays in southeastern North Carolina
Reaching the goal of having a permanent home requires “brick and mortar” and land. The search is currently underway in southeastern North Carolina and we envision building 30 cottages as well as a conference center.
