Valley Center of the Deaf

Valley Center of the Deaf (VCD) is a community-based organization that empowers Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing individuals to live independently and achieve their personal goals. VCD seeks to "fill the gaps" in the community by providing services which are not available elsewhere.

Hearing loss is a low-incidence disability that is very much unrecognized in the larger community, and those with hearing loss face formidable communication barriers, which can prevent them from living and working independently. At VCD, we assist our clients in bridging the gap between the Deaf culture and the hearing worlds. To us, every person matters. That is why we work so hard to help our clients gain self-determination in their daily lives.

We strive to provide services that are effective and accessible to our Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing clients. 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.

How to participate:

Our hours of operation are Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
