Welcome to Valley Center of the Deaf

Valley Center of the Deaf (VCD) is a community-based organization that empowers Deaf and hard of hearing individuals to live independently and achieve their personal goals. VCD seeks to "fill the gaps" in the community by providing services which are not available elsewhere.
