The Children’s Center for Communication and Development at The University of Southern Mississippi has received a donation of $11,050 from the Rotary Club of Hattiesburg, which represents proceeds from the organization’s annual “Night in Italy” benefit dinner.

This marks the ninth year that Rotary of Hattiesburg has supported and partnered with The Children’s Center, bringing the donation total to $111,045.

The Children’s Center for Communication and Development at Southern Miss provides an interdisciplinary team approach to the assessment and treatment of communicatively – and developmentally – delayed children ages birth through five years. Services are either home-based or center-based, depending on a child’s needs. Services are also geared to train and support families, university students and professionals.
