Many people and businesses struggle to communicate with those who are hard of hearing, creating a loss of opportunity.

The Deaf and Hard of Hearing Center provides a variety of activities and options for those that are hard of hearing.

Having local resources for the deaf and hard of hearing community is crucial.

The efforts from Smith County to be more accommodating to the deaf community have not gone unnoticed.
