Community Outreach Program for the Deaf

The Community Outreach Program for the Deaf (COPD) was established in 1973 as a place where Deaf persons and persons with a hearing loss could go and where communication was easy. COPD maintains this mission today: to provide services to Deaf, DeafBlind and other people with a hearing loss where needed and in whatever communication is used by the person served. COPD seeks to "fill the gaps" in the community by providing services which are not available elsewhere.

COPD provides services throughout Arizona to persons with a hearing loss, providing a "one-stop" center with comprehensive services to meet all needs. Our staff members, most of whom are bilingual in English and American Sign Language (ASL), are well prepared to respond to the needs of our clients and are well informed about the assistance available within the community. Our services are free to Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing individuals.
