DALLAS(KDAF)— The Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex recently gained a new charity committed to helping children with multiple disabilities and profound deafness.

Be An Angel was founded in Houston more than 30 years ago but launched the DFW Chapter in 2022 with the hope of helping more than 22,000 children with special needs in North Texas.

This month, the organization hosted its inaugural Catch An Angel Celebrity Golf Tournament at the Cowboys Golf Club in Irving, with the hopes to raise funds to support children and families in need of specialized equipment, hearing aids, and services in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

With the month of May recognizing Better Hearing and Speech Month, Be An Angel is looking to raise awareness about communication disorders and available treatment options that can improve the quality of life for those who are profoundly deaf.
