The Center for Hearing, Speech and Language enriches people’s lives by providing innovative, caring and high-quality services for people with barriers to communication, regardless of financial status.
Why CHSL is Unique
- Financial Assistance Provision: While there are other agencies providing hearing, vision, speech and language services in Denver and Colorado Springs, CHSL is unique. We are a not-for-profit organization whose primary purpose is to provide first-rate services to the community. We also provide financial assistance to low-income, disabled, at-risk, uninsured and underserved children and adults.
- Social Enterprise Fees: CHSL combines fundraising methods with fee-for-service income-generating strategies, commonly called Social Enterprise Fees. With these in place, potential unforeseen disruptions in earned income and/or philanthropic funding streams have less chance of negatively impacting the delivery of quality healthcare services.
- Time Tested: The Center for Hearing, Speech & Language is over 90 years old! We've been providing quality services to the people of Denver since 1918 and we'd bet that's not something many other service providers can claim!
