Quality of Life Improvement
The QLI program is designed to improve the quality of life of Deaf adults who need assistance. We provide services to help with basic human needs such as food, clothing, shelter, financial management and more. We also advocate for equal access and cultivate understanding with our Deaf clients, as well as the local hearing community, blending the two communities together!
Family Awareness and Communication Enhancement Services
Our FACES program is focused on families of both Deaf and Hearing (which we refer to as "blended families"). We bring culture awareness to these families and provide sign language training to improve communication. We offer tutoring sessions, silent socials, engaging productions and more.
