ABOUT US

Quota International of Massillon is an all volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has been providing much needed services in the Western Stark County community since 1992.  We are especially known for our service to indivduals who are deaf, hard of hearing, or speech impaired and disadvantaged women and children.

We were instrumental in making sure that all newborns are screened for hearing loss prior to discharge from an Ohio hospital or birthing center.  This important screening became law in Ohio due to our three-year grassroots effort working with our state legislators.  Universal Newborn Hearing Screening (HB 150) was passed by the Ohio Legislature and signed into law in 2002.

Over these last three decades, we have provided over 110 infants and children in our community with hearing aids, purchased over 370 sound field amplification systems for our local schools to improve student learning in the classroom, granted over 40 scholarships to high school, college and graduate students, and provided local disadvantaged women and children with much needed assistance.


 

WHAT PEOPLE SAY...

Carrie Spangler, Au.D, CCC-A

"I am grateful to have been chosen as the first recipient of the Quota of Massillon Scholarship Award when I first started on my journey into audiology.  The scholarly support as well as the support from Quota has propelled me into a lifelong career fulfilling a personal purpose and passion as a deaf audiologist."

"Because of Quota’s work to ensure that all newborns in the state of Ohio have hearing evaluations before leaving the hospital, we were able to get Kate her first hearing aid before she was 3 month’s old. This early access to sound has helped ensure that she is highly successful in a mainstream classroom and in competitive athletics. We were so grateful for everything that Quota has done for our family, that I joined the organization along with my mom and sister in order to continue their work in our community."

Mackenzie Brenner, Mental and Behavioral Health Program Manager,
Boys & Girls Club of Massillon

"Through our partnership with Quota International of Massillon, 35 Boys & Girls Club of Massillon members had the opportunity to participate in NASA AstroCamp.  This project-based learning experience encouraged members to develop new skills in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  Our members came back every day excited to share what they had learned and eager to see what awaited them next."
