"Since 1946, providing state-of-the-art services for Lancaster County's deaf and hard-of-hearing community."
Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Services of Lancaster County is a non-profit, United Way charitable organization. The mission of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services of Lancaster County is to enhance the quality of life and encourage independence for those who are Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services (DHHS) began in 1946 as the Hearing Conservation Center. It was established to help veterans returning from the war with hearing loss. Later, the Hearing Conservation center opened its office space to another agency, Counseling Services for the Deaf, Inc.(chartered 1973). In 1979, the two agencies merged to form the Hearing Conservation/Deaf Services Center.
Under our present name, Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Services, was developed from the merger in 1979 of these two formerly independent agencies under the name Hearing Conservation/Deaf Services Center. Under our present name, Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Services of Lancaster County, we have expanded our services to include one full-time interpreter, two case managers and support staff and management. The Agency also employs the services of a certified, licensed audiologist who is also based on-site at our
150 Farmington Lane, Lancaster, Pennsylvania office.
