Bring your loved ones back into the conversation...NVRC is the area's leading non-profit for people who are Deaf and hard of hearing.

Hearing loss is known as the invisible disability and easy to overlook, but chances are someone you know has a hearing loss. Whether it happens suddenly or gradually, hearing loss and deafness can create the feeling of isolation from friends and family.

  • One in ten Americans has some degree of hearing loss
  • By age 65, one in three people has a hearing loss
  • Hearing loss is the third most prevalent and treatable condition after arthritis and hypertension.

Since 1988, NVRC has been providing services to deaf and hard of hearing individuals, their families, and caregivers. These include educational programs on hearing loss, hearing assistive technology demonstrations, and “Celebrate Communication” - the metro area’s premier annual outreach event in May.

NVRC is also the Demonstration Site for the state-funded Technology Assistance Program for those financially eligible to receive communication and signaling devices through Virginia’s Loan-to-Own program.

Continuing outreach and education is needed to assure the safety and well-being of all deaf and hard of hearing citizens.
