Deaf Supports

Hope Community Resources' Deaf Supports Team offers support and services to Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals in a manner that is free of cultural or language barriers. Our staff members in Deaf Supports are fluent in American Sign Language (ASL) and well-versed in Deaf culture.  We have extensive experience working with deaf adults and children of many cultures and communities; from Anchorage to very remote parts of Alaska. (Pictured above are Sharon Miranda and Michael Merritt.)
