Seniors Deaf Housing
At the prompting of deaf senior citizens in southeast Michigan, a coalition has been exploring the first Deaf Housing Facility for Seniors in Michigan. There are 16 such facilities in the nation, the closest being in Columbus, Ohio. Coalition members include: Area Agency on Aging 1-B (AAA1-B); Deaf & Hearing Impaired Services, Inc. (DHIS); and Venture, Inc., a division of Oakland Livingston Human Service Agency (OLHSA).
The project is currently under development with respect to site selection, discussion with potential host communities, project design, financing and fund-raising. We welcome investment partners or individual contributions.
For further information or to request a preliminary Waiting List Application, contact DHIS at 248-473-1888 (voice) or 248-474-7938 (Fax), or 248-473-1875 (TTY).
