We've nearly made our goal for 2021!  Thanks to so many of you, our financial needs are almost met for the calendar year 2021.  With that support we have already accomplished so much, but we have that much more to do in 2022.  Our signal area has tripled but we're lagging far behind in finding people who could be tuning in, but need to be told how. 

In 2020, we launched the Voicecorps Reading Network, which makes our reading service available to more than 80,000 eligible Ohio residents - most of whom will be experiencing what restored access to print feels like for the first time. One of those new listeners is an Allen County gentleman named Jim.  Jim is so keen on sharing the good news, he is actively working to schedule Voicecorps to speak at both of his low-vision support groups!

We want to keep the excitment going. Will you help with a gift of support before 2021 comes to a close?  Simply click the DONATIONS tab and make a one-time or monthly gift on our secure web page.  You not only make your gift in time for a 2021 tax-deduction* but you will be sending a message to Jim and all the others that says "I support your restored access to current print and your ability to make informed, independent decisions about your own life."  

Thank you for giving us the ability to read newspapers, magazines and other current print to a very deserving audience. To stay in touch with our progress, join our newsletter e-mail list!

With so many people adopting "tech gadgets" and with those same gadgets becoming easier to use, we're finding new listeners through the Amazon Alexa smart speakers. In the upcoming cooler weather, Voicecorps is focusing on finding people who need our reading service as a resident of assisted living centers, congregate care, or other settings where personal living space is at a premium. The tiny Echo Dot is going to be very helpful for those facilities that have WiFi available to residents.

If you know someone who could be eligible for Voicecorps reading services and know they have internet service and WiFi in their home, please ask them to call us and register for free reading services.  Our number is 614-274-7650.

If you have an unused Echo Dot and would like to donate it for the use of a Voicecorps listener, please securely package the device and send it to:
