Welcome to Lori's Voice

Lori's Voice is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which was founded and established to help young people with disabilities. This organization evolved from Lori Hasting's great love for children and the realization of so many challenges young people face when living with a disability. Here is an overview of our organization and a glimpse of Lori's children's books, which have been written using voice activated software.
If you know of a child through the age of 18 who may benefit, please click on the Application for Assistance tab, and return to Lori's Voice. Once we receive the application, the review board will make a decision based on your needs and qualifications.
We wanted to send a huge thank you for the $200 scholarship Lori's Voice has contributed in order for our daughter to attend Camp Alec. This means a lot to our family and is such a big help. We are traveling from Colorado so our daughter could attend the camp. She attended last year and it was such a wonderful experience for her.
