Who we are

Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services Division empowers Minnesotans who are deaf, deafblind, hard of hearing, and late deafened Minnesotans to effectively access resources and services. With access to communication and appropriate tools, people with hearing loss can live independently and safely, engage with their families and participate in their communities. Services are available statewide through DHHSD offices and community-based providers.
