[/mt_one_fifth] [mt_four_fifth_last]As an official 501(c) (3) nonprofit group, we rely on formal funding programs, contributions from individuals and an outstanding network of volunteers, especially for our seniors program.

Federal and State funding is never enough. DHIS requests your help to more adequately provide services that are needed to preserve the independence and dignity of all deaf and hard of hearing individuals.

There are several ways you can help:

  • • Annual donation.
  • • Donation after services are rendered for you or your family.
  • • Donation in honor of a friend, family member, or loved one.
  • • Donation to support Interpreting Services or one of our special programs.

You may download a donation form here, or make a donation online with your credit or debit card online via PayPal.

DHIS relies on a network of caring, giving, talented individuals to leverage available resources and provide valuable community input to our nonprofit mission.
Volunteers may help at Seniors Satellite Sites, help out in the office and with advocacy campaigns, or chaperone on field trips and outings.  For more information on becoming a DHIS volunteer, please call (248) 473-1888.
