Here is the History Section on their website which gives recognition to Sarah’s relative…
The Center for Hearing and Communication was established in 1910 under the name Nitchie Service League, Inc. by educator Edward B. Nitchie and later became known as the League for the Hard of Hearing and most recently, the Center for Hearing and Communication. Our organization was created to improve the quality of life for people of all ages with a hearing loss. That mission continues to drive us today. By offering the highest level of clinical expertise and compassionate care, we empower individuals to achieve their full potential and assure a world without limits for all people with hearing loss.
1910: A sound start
Our nonprofit organization was founded under the name Nitchie Service League, Inc. (later to become League for the Hard of Hearing) by educator Edward B. Nitchie to improve the quality of life for people of all ages with hearing loss.
Mr. Nitchie himself was deaf; he experienced a period of deep despair, isolation, and joblessness. His friends sought to ease his unnecessary suffering, as well as that of others with hearing loss. Their work together inspired the birth of our agency.
