General Information
Description of ServicePromote the concerns that affect the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community in the four-state area of Western Maryland, the Northern and Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, South Central Pennsylvania, and North Western Virginia.

Formed in November 1986, Deafnet provides a mechanism for people with hearing loss to advocate for the improvement of existing services and the creation of new ones. Deafnet is supported by people who, like you, are interested in making our community accessible to the Deaf or Hard of Hearing population and receives no federal or state funding.

Deafnet provides sign language classes, interpreting and advocacy for the deaf. Training on the use of TTY's as well as on the American with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) is also provided.
