Over 28,000 people in the Coastal Bend lives with hearing loss. Most are not yet of retirement age. Deaf or hard of hearing adults can be depressed, anxious, or frustrated by communication barriers.
The Deaf and Hard of Hearing center works hard to provide programs that are accessible and inclusive.
Deaf or hard of hearing children report feeling friendless or unhappy, particularly when social time with other Deaf or hard of hearing children are limited. Through our recreational programs, we bring the young generation together – where hearing differences isn’t a barrier.
We are grateful for many years of community support enabling us to improve thousands of lives.
