Our Passion. Our Community.
Deafnet Association, Inc. is a private, non-profit agency. We promote the concerns that affect the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community in the four-state area of Western Maryland, the Northern and Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, Southern Pennsylvania, and North Western Virginia.
Formed in November of 1987, Deafnet has worked to provide a mechanism for people with hearing loss to advocate for the improvement of existing services and the creation of new ones.
Deafnet supports people who, like you, are interested in making our community accessible to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing populations. Deafnet receives no federal or state funding. Deafnet receives it’s funding from individual and organization donations, fundraising events and interpreting fees. These funds help maintain the quality and quantity of services. With the passage of the ADA, there is now an even greater demand for services.
You are invited to become a part of Deafnet!
