Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community

Would you like to be part of a deaf and hard of hearing community that is growing?

If this is intriguing to you, then come to the charming town of Ashland, OR… home of SOU, the world renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and many outdoor activities.  While Ashland has a small town atmosphere, it is also close to Medford, which is the largest city in southern Oregon and one of the the fastest growing regions in the state.

If you would like more information, please contact Edwin Cancel, our Program Coordinator for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services.
