Mission:
Colorado Families for Hands & Voices is dedicated to supporting families with children who are Deaf or
Hard of Hearing without a bias around communication modes or methodology. We're a parent- driven, non-profit organization providing families with the resources, networks, and information
they need to improve communication access and educational outcomes for their children. Our
outreach activities, parent/professional collaboration, and advocacy efforts are focused on enabling Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing children to reach their highest potential.
Results:
We completed a handbook on the Bridge to Preschool in 2012 with critical information for families when their child turns three and they are considering preschool services.
more than 300 families received personal parent to parent support through phone calls or home visits for their young children with hearing loss last year.
