A resource for the deaf community
The “deaf community” is large. The community includes all those who touch the lives of people who are deaf and hard of hearing, including children, family, friends, employers, caregivers, co-workers, interpreters and service providers. Our goal at IMPACT CIL is to increase communication, awareness and education between all of these people so that we can all work together more effectively. These services are an essential part of our charitable mission: advocacy, information and referral, peer support and counseling, and independent living skills training.
