Our Purpose

We proudly serve Arizona residents with hearing loss through community involvement and partnerships with local agencies and organizations. We are committed to expanding resources and identifying opportunities for improved quality of life.

Information and Referral

ACDHH maintains an extensive directory of resources and services available to the Deaf, Deaf-Blind and Hard of Hearing communities. The directory is used to make referrals to assist consumers in need of information for employment, housing, education and much, much more.

Empowerment

By informing Deaf individuals about their rights and the laws and programs available to support those rights, they can become empowered as self-advocates. Advocates are available to act on behalf of consumers as needed.
