Thank You to our Collaborators!

Hands & Voices HQ is proud of a long history of collaboration with incredible leaders in the field of deafness.  We believe that our combined efforts have and will continue to make a difference in the lives of families with children who are deaf and hard of hearing.  Here are just a few of our many partners and collaborators:

"To accomplish something big, you need to consciously draw people into your life who will challenge you and give you a different way of thinking about things.

If you want to accomplish a difficult task, realize that your way of doing things is not the only way, and collaborative partnerships give you the opportunity to do just that!"

– Janet DesGeorges, Executive Director, Hands & Voices
