YAKIMA, Wash.-- A local speech and hearing center in Yakima is now able to help pay for the treatment of it's patients.
The Yakima Valley Hearing and Speech Center received a $25,000 grant from the Lynn Hanses Katz Memorial to start a legacy fund to help pay for services.
The center serves many patients across the valley from all ages that have speech, hearing and learning disabilities.
The executive director of the center said this grant would really help those who can't fully afford treatment.
"We want to maintain that service, it's been dependent for 42 years, but funding conditions are changing and so our step is to strengthen our positions so that we can continue to serve those needs," said the center's executive director, Nancy Leahy.
The legacy fund will help people who cannot afford the full price of services, and will subsidize treatment not fully paid for by Medicare and Medicaid.
