Welcome to Sound Start’s Future!
I’m Bromme H. Cole and feel privileged to serve as Sound Start’s Chief Executive.
As servant leader, I believe in pioneering and the benefits that unfold from being fearless in one’s questions and actions. I am committed to discovering better solutions and leaner operations for Sound Start. Every day I look for new opportunities to grow and implement change management techniques to leverage advantages.
Our platform is sound
Sound Start builds on over a quarter of a century of successfully providing infants and toddlers with hearing loss the early intervention needed to make the greatest difference.
Our commitments are bold
Our first priority has been and always will be to our core constituents — children, families, teachers, speech pathologists, donors. You inspire us!
We are strengthening that commitment with another pledge: to create an ever-more-integrated and data-driven environment, with a focus on impact, metrics, and community involvement. This will enable us to more efficiently report progress against goals, concretely and consistently.
We have another commitment — to grow into a $20 million organization within the next 5 years. In other to fulfill that commitment, we have created a 5-year Strategic Plan that will increase outreach to underserved communities…provide funding for improved educational opportunities…invest in research …and ensure that no child with hearing loss is without support.
This planning process couldn’t come at a better time. I am inspired by the vast array of resources (human, technological, and financial) at our disposal to help us forward our goals. I firmly believe the digital age offers greater opportunities for universal advancements in all manner of charitable giving.
An important aspect of our Strategic Plan is a clear commitment to inclusion. As an organization focused on improving education for all children with hearing loss, we clearly recognize that internal and external diversity are necessary to achieve our mission.
Sound Start’s 5-Year Strategic Plan
Our future is bright
We have already started advancing our Plan. And we will continue to move it forward as we focus on our ultimate goal: equal educational opportunities for all children with hearing loss. A sound start, indeed!
With courage, accountability, and organizational mindfulness – Sound Start will expand and flourish.
