“Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.”  Matthew 5:7                      


In our society there are many people that struggle with disabilities, some more noticeable than others.  Silent Voice is a ShareLife supported agency that supports deaf children and their families, helping them to communicate in a sign language environment.  Many of us taking the ability to hear for granted, but for those who cannot hear, the work of Silent Voice helps to make it possible for the family to communicate.  The story of Suma, as a summer camp participant and as a counsellor, shows how our agency is helping to make an impact in the lives of the deaf community.

When Suma was younger, she participated in the ShareLife supported Silent Voice summer camp in Toronto where deaf children and their hearing siblings enjoy a day camp experience, communicating by using American Sign Language.  She later joined the camp team as a counsellor and worked for Silent Voice for six summers.  Suma is currently working as a Day Program counsellor helping individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing by providing activities and support for their daily activities that meet their interests. Suma is also completing her degree in Child and Youth Counselling.

“I have received great support from Silent Voice from the time when I was a camper to the present day” Suma shares. “This ShareLife supported agency helped me discover who I am and what my purpose is in life and helped set my goals for my future. It is because of Silent Voice that I decided that when I grew up I wanted to help other children and youth who are going through difficult times in life or experience oppression and isolation in their schools and communities. I wanted to show them that they are not alone and to provide them with role model support that is really needed in their lives. That strength and self-respect becomes a part of who they are. If I didn’t know about Silent Voice and their services, I would not likely be where I am today.”

Help us support the work of the counsellors like Suma at Silent Voice as well as the children and youth who participate in their programs as they build their self-confidence and form strong bonds with each other.
