Who We Are
The Saint John Deaf & Hard of Hearing Services Inc. (SJDHHS) is a non-profit fee for services organization partially funded by the United Way of Greater Saint John and local fundraising events.
The SJDHHS was formed in 1979 in response to a growing recognition of the needs of deaf and hard of hearing individuals. The agency's goal is to enable deaf, hard of hearing and deafened people to live independent productive lives, with full access to the services and opportunities available to the hearing populations.
In order to accomplish this, our new vision is to foster self-sufficiency through transitional and early intervention services bridging the gap between the hearing and hard of hearing/deaf world.
SJDHHS provides a wide range of services to the Southwestern New Brunswick (Grand Falls to Sussex) deaf, hard of hearing and late deafened communities. Our programs and services are extensive. Our office and staff is always open to new and innovative ways to provide services.
