deafened and hard of hearing community in south-eastern New Brunswick, Canada.

Greater Moncton. All of south-eastern New Brunswick's Deaf and hard of hearing, close to 600 people, utilize the agency's services.

clients in the north-eastern portion of the province and we act as consultants in other areas of the province.

The goal of South-East Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services Inc. is to empower clients to live independently and productively, with full access to
opportunities that are readily available to persons who hear.
In order to accomplish this goal, our vision is to foster self-sufficiency through transitional services bridging the gap between those who hear and the
Deaf, deafened and hard of hearing.
