A project was developed to begin to identify community-based programs nationwide for persons who are deaf or hard of hearing, their goals and objectives, and the future needs of these programs. This is a report on part one of that project. Using a list building technique, 1481 programs were initially identified as possibly providing community-based services to persons who were deaf or hard of hearing. Of those programs contacted nationally, 848 community-based programs or agencies indicated that they served persons who are deaf or hard of hearing. Information obtained from responding programs included: general types of services provided, populations served, and staffing patters.
