Charlotte Speech and Hearing Center (CSHC) was founded by the Junior League of Charlotte in 1967 as the first community speech and hearing center in North Carolina. We are a unique organization that provides high quality services to everyone from senior executives to a single mom struggling to make ends meet. The revenue generated from one individual helps support our community initiatives.
Hearing and speech-language disorders affect more than 40 million Americans. We strive to make a lasting impact on those in need in our community, to improve their quality of life and help make them successful, productive members of society.
At Charlotte Speech and Hearing Center we provide access to superior speech-language and hearing services that empower and transform lives.
Our vision is that everyone in need, regardless of income or other barriers, has access to the speech-language and hearing services they need to build their own pathways to success and to obtain a meaningful and enriched life.
- We believe that excellence in service includes treating clients with compassion and respect.
- We believe that communication leads to empowerment and self-reliance.
- We believe our friendly, caring environment nurtures those we serve as well as our employees.
- We believe that a team of professionals that is diverse in experience and expertise is critical to serving the varied needs of our clients.
Communication allows us to learn and to go about our daily lives without fear or confusion. It allows us to share our love with others and receive theirs in turn. Because many hearing and speech-impaired individuals are unable to express their thoughts and feelings or understand another’s message, this skill has been lost, consequently resulting in a negative affect on quality of life. For these reasons, it is our goal that everyone in our sphere of influence, regardless of barriers, receives services to remediate any speech, language, or hearing problem to allow them to communicate as effectively as possible.
