Every family, who has experienced the birth of a child, knows that it’s the most exciting time in their lives. Now imagine receiving the news that your new baby can’t hear. That’s when families begin their cycle of grief, with feelings of isolation and fear. This is the point at which The CARE Project makes a difference.
The CARE Project is the brainchild of Dr. Johnnie Sexton, an educational audiologist. The idea was conceived in Wilmington, NC over a glass of wine among old college friends. But, Dr. Sexton has taken the concept and turned it into a life-changing nonprofit that has helped many local families in southeastern NC. The CARE Project offers these families a beacon of hope on their journey. It gives parents of deaf or hard of hearing children the strategies they need for being proactive in helping their children develop skills, so they may realize their fullest potential.  One father has likened it to feeling adrift in the sea and not knowing what to do, until he found his CARE Project family. The CARE logo is the Old Baldy lighthouse because it offers a beacon of hope for these families on their journey to resiliency.
Spectrum Gallery is the product of a recent expansion of Spectrum Art & Jewelry.  With a larger space and more offerings, Spectrum Gallery is more exciting than ever. Spectrum is proud to be a premier source for original art, fine glass and American craft,  representing many talented artists both locally and nationally.  Visit Spectrum Gallery at the Forum, 1125 J Military Cutoff Road, Wilmington, NC 28405 to purchase raffle tickets and choose which pieces of original art
