Maryland / D.C. Families for Hands & Voices

Non-biased support for families with children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing


Our Mission


Maryland/D.C. Hands & Voices is dedicated to supporting families with children who are deaf and hard-of-hearing without bias around communication modes or methodology. We provide parents with the resources, networks, and information they need to improve communication access and educational outcomes for their children. 

Who We Are


We are a group of parents and professionals, from all across D.C. and Maryland, who believe that families can make the best choices for their child if they have access to good information and support.

What We Offer


We offer a safe place to explore options, get emotional support, learn from one another, and share what we have in common. We host our own events, but love to partner with and promote the events of other organizations.
