We are... a Parent Led and Professionally Collaborative organization infused with the life experiences of DHH adults that is dedicated to serving families with children who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing without a bias around communication modes or methodology.
Learning your child is deaf or hard of hearing can bring on different emotions at different times. We understand and support your need to think through your unique family situation and we are here to help you to make informed choices for your family.
Hands & Voices (H&V) was built on the foundation of diverse families coming together to share the experience of raising children who are deaf and hard of hearing (DHH). We have a multitude of methods and platforms to provide support to families through our programs, projects, and communities.Learn More
How do we change what we don’t know about ourselves and change our current behaviors that we believe to be helpful? The conversations and the work that we are doing is just the beginning.
Please don’t stop at “learning” and please start doing the work. It’s time. We at H&V will be a brave space and safe community for each of us to do the work on bias and learn about privilege while expanding our understanding of ally, empowerment, institutional bias, microaggression and other terms that we may have wondered about. From there the work and actions that need to be taken will emerge for individuals and Chapters.Learn More
