Shared Video Experiences
Across the years, The CARE Project Media Director (Xris Kessler) has filmed many family stories for the purpose of sharing experiences with new groups of parents who become involved in TCP’s retreats, workshops and support groups. These film segments bring a sense of comfort to parents with the realization that they are not alone, not broken, not isolated, that their child is not unique and that there is support to be found amongst those families who share in these experiences. Dr. Sexton includes the shared experience video segments in all training to provide professionals with greater insight into what families experience outside the clinical environment. In addition, TCP is now filming the professionals’ experiences with the families over their individual careers. This new perspective has provided critical insight for families on what emotional impact is experienced by those individuals who are working with families day to day to address the issues related to having a child who is deaf or hard of hearing.

30 Cottages: A Path To Our Dream
The VisionDr. Johnnie Sexton, Au.D., has had a vision for many years to have a permanent site for The CARE Project with 2 clear-cut purposes:
1. Family Retreats: Bringing groups of families together with one common issue (like hearing loss) to realize that they are not alone, that they have a community of support and to gain advocacy skills and confidence to continue their emotional family journeys.
2. Professional Education: bringing professionals who provide services for families with children who are deaf and hard of hearing together for continuing education opportunities on a variety of topics that would strengthen their skills and sensitize them to the family emotional journey.
The GoalWe will raise the funds to make this happen. We will sell 100,000 bricks at $150 each to have the funds to purchase, renovate and construct 30 cottages. YES, WE CAN!
The BricksThe bricks will be used to pave a walkway from the main buildings to the 30 cottages and create a half circle around the perimeter of the cottages, much like an embrace by those who help make this dream come true!

9 brick plot: $1350 (3 x 3)
