Born from a father’s unwavering love, Pastor John K. Summers, a luminary at 90 years, founded the “Paul Project,” a tribute to his son Paul, who was born deaf. This endeavor isn’t just a haven; it’s where deaf children’s voices find wings. In its nurturing embrace, sign language, reading, and writing are the pathways for unheard voices to flourish, bridging silence and communication. The motto “REACHING HIGHER” resonates here, where lives transform and destinies redefine.
Within the Deaf Center’s mosaic lies the tale of a 16-year-old girl from a mountain village, unacquainted with schooling until she found Place of Hope in Haiti. Enveloped by its embrace, she blossomed into a language maestro, her voice overcoming the silence. Pastor Summers’ legacy, the “Paul Project,” transcends words, embodying a father’s devotion and empowerment. A symphony of hearts, this legacy plays for every Paul, celebrating boundless parental love.
