By | Children & Youth Programs, Press, Silent Voice | No Comments

Silent Voice was thrilled to be featured on City TV’s Breakfast Television on July 5, 2019.  Live Eye reporter, Nicole Servinis, braved the above 30 temperature to come out to the Sign Language Summer Program (SLSP) day camp and spent the morning meeting parents, staff, Silent Voice Board Chair and Executive Director, and playing with the campers.  Nicole picked up several signs and is a real natural!  Thank you Nicole for spotlighting SLSP on its 45th year!  SLSP is supported by Catholic Charities and ShareLife and fundraised dollars. If you would like to support this camp for Deaf campers and their siblings and kids of Deaf adults, please contact us.
