California Hands & Voices is a parent-driven, non-profit organization dedicated to supporting families’ choices in language, communication modality and methodologies without bias.

We are a diverse group of mothers, fathers, professionals and community members all working together committed to the Mission and Vision of California Hands & Voices. We are Hearing, Deaf and Hard of Hearing adults who use a variety of means to communicate with our children, including but not limited to American Sign Language and English (reading, writing, and spoken).

We believe that families can make informed decisions with access to resources and support. Our outreach activities, parent/professional collaboration, and advocacy efforts are focused on empowering parents so that their Deaf and Hard of Hearing children can reach their highest potential.

California Hands & Voices is a nonprofit, all volunteer, 100% giving organization that depends on donations to continue to bring educational programs, family gatherings, and to further grow the network of empowered parents throughout the state. We are a non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible and deeply appreciated no matter the amount.

California Hands & Voices Chapter is a state chapter of Hands & Voices.

Thank you Ross Manges and David Whittaker!

In 2015 we were proud to launch a brand new website for California Hands & Voices! This site combines the great resources from the original California Hands & Voices website and the information and registration for our DHH family Camps. We are very thankful to Ross Manges and David Whittaker at Sparkistic, LLC for donating their time to create the new website.
