The mission of the Looper Speech and Hearing Center is to provide communication solutions that are affordable and accessible to the communities we serve. This includes speech-language assessment and therapy, swallowing therapy and hearing health care services.

Looper Board of Directors Vice Chair John Cowart explains, "In order to make our services affordable and accessible, Looper provides discounted services to individuals with demonstrated financial need through our Community Speech and Hearing Funds. In 2018, we provided $87,872.85 in reduced cost services to our patients, and 56% of our patients received some form of financial assistance. This means that our Community Funds helped 512 individuals obtain communication services that they otherwise may not have been able to access, improving both health outcomes and quality of life for patients of all ages. For 2020, we are aiming even higher, with a goal of raising $100,000 for our Community Speech and Hearing Funds to help even more individuals in our community obtain the services they need."
