Since 1960, Central Florida Speech and Hearing Center has proudly served the citizens of Polk County and the surrounding areas. Our fund helps us in our commitment to help more people communicate better by subsidizing patient care. Of the 25,000 patients served this past year, over 11,000 were children and 98% of those children required subsidized funding made possible by donations from citizens throughout our community, just like you.
