The half Helen Story

Executive Director Chelsea Elliott was a young child when she learned she was blind in her left eye and deaf in her right ear. After learning about Helen Keller, Chelsea declared, I am half-blind and half-deaf. I am half-Helen!– a childhood nickname now inextricably linked to her future. When she finished college in 2013, Chelsea used her graduation money to found half Helen Foundation (hH).
