VOICE Parent Support Group
About the Winnipeg Chapter
The Winnipeg Chapter of the national organization VOICE for Hearing Impaired Children was officially established in 1994. In 2015, with the help of the Winnipeg Foundation, the chapter was able to expand its activities in an effort to support parents of children with hearing loss in Winnipeg and surrounding areas.
The Winnipeg Chapter Coordinator, Jennifer Cottes, is a parent of a child with hearing loss who is also actively engaged in AV therapy at the Clinic. Jennifer’s role is to build a parent-led chapter by involving parents and families in setting chapter goals, establishing an executive committee and chapter structure, and engaging volunteers in leading parent support activities such as social events, educational workshops or to help advocate for supports in AVT.
