The Northern Virginia Resource Center for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Persons (NVRC) is a mission-driven, diverse, community-based organization that is passionate about empowering deaf and hard of hearing people and their families to positively change their lives through improved communication.
Established in 1988 by local leaders in the deaf and hard of hearing community, NVRC exists to empower deaf and hard of hearing individuals and their families through education, advocacy and community involvement. We currently serve the counties of Fairfax and Arlington and the City of Falls Church. With almost 250,000 people with hearing loss, the Washington DC Metro area is one of the densest pockets of deaf and hard of hearing people in the country. We provide this community in Northern Virginia - along with their families, friends, coworkers, employers, and the businesses and agencies that serve them - the tools and resources they need for success and independence in our communities.
Your support helps us to continue providing support to a diverse range of people, including the deaf, deaf-blind, late-deafened, hard of hearing, parents with deaf and hard of hearing children, children of deaf and hard of hearing parents, educators, sign language teachers and students, hearing aid users, people with cochlear implants, people with tinnitus, and people with auditory processing disorders.
