From January through June 2022, the KEX Kids Fund helped 18 children with comprehensive hearing exams in 14 counties. We partnered with 14 audiology providers.

School nurses work closely with the KEX Kids Fund and the Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation (OLSHF) to ensure that children who are referred for vision & hearing care receive resources.

Applications will continue to increase as in-person learning resumes at most schools, so your support is crucial to sustaining our program.

School nurses are grateful for the resources provided by the KEX Kids Fund. This program helps children hear and learn to their potential. 

Thank you for your support!

From January 1, 2021 to July 1, 2021, the KEX Kids Fund helped 23 children with comprehensive hearing exams in 8 counties. We partnered with 13 audiology providers.

Because of covid and schools not completely reopened, there had been a decline of requests. During the past few months, we started to see more requests for help with hearing care. The number of requests will increase in the fall as schools return to in person instruction and school nurses are able to refer more students.

For children who need access to hearing care, the KEX Kids Fund (KKF) is a welcome relief.

We provide support for hearing/audiology exams for those who are eligible. We also operate a KKF-funded loaner hearing aid program for children. This loaner program offers crucial equipment - hearing aids and the Roger/FM devices (microphones and receivers) - for use by families in their homes. Access to hearing exams and equipment help children learn to their potential and thrive at home by providing resources that may be out of reach for some families, especially now as the effects of the pandemic continue to be felt by working families.

Applications for hearing support (5) were low from September to December 2020. KKF partners with 13 audiology providers statewide. With most students not in school yet - but learning from home - it is more of a challenge to identify hearing issues and get them the help they need. School nurses have told us now that more schools are returning to in person instruction KKF can expect more applications. We anticipate an increase in applications for the rest of the school year.

Thank you for your support of our hearing program that gives children the medical care they need to thrive!
