At DePaul School, our students truly do speak miracles and that wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of people like YOU! Only 60% of our operating costs are covered by our state subsidy so your support is vital in ensuring our students have access to the specialized education they need in order to excel in the hearing and speaking world.
Your charitable donations have helped provide students, like Jared, with the critical resources he needs to navigate the listening and speaking world and to transition into his neighborhood school. Jared just received his second cochlear implant and he is so excited to be taking guitar lessons this year. Perhaps, with your help, he will be playing in his neighborhood school’s jazz band in the next few years!
