To advocate, seek equality, and promote self-determination through empowerment for those who seek our assistance; and to enhance the awareness and understanding of Deaf Culture and the unique communication needs of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals.

Vision Statement

Within the next five years (ends 2021), the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Service Center (DHHSC) will provide a wider range of exceptional social services to Deaf and Hard of Hearing people and their families in the Central Valley; our agency will become financially stronger and more stable through improved staff retention and public relations, which will build a broader visible presence in order to provide effective communication access to all community individuals.
