Saint John Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services Inc. (SJDHHS) is a non-profit fee for service organization. We formed in 1979 in response to a growing recognition of the needs of Deaf and hard of hearing individuals.

Our goal is to enable Deaf, hard of hearing and deafened people to live independent and productive lives with full access to the services and opportunities available to the hearing populations.

In order to accomplish this, our vision is to foster self-sufficiency through transitional and early intervention services bridging the gap between the hearing and hard of hearing/Deaf world.
