I hope you all are feeling well.
I want to announce DEAF, Inc.’s Phase 3 will not begin next week. We will stay in Phase 2. This means all DEAF, Inc. offices throughout eastern Massachusetts will remain open two days a week by appointment only.
Phase 2 will continue through December 2020.
DEAF, Inc. wants to ensure a safe and healthy environment for everyone.
We are still available to provide both remote and in-person services.
DEAF, Inc. reopening phases are subject to change, depending on public health COVID-19 data trends.
We will continue to share new office reopening updates.
Stay healthy. Stay safe. Continue to wear masks and practice social distancing.

Hello! I’m Elaine Ducharme, the director of the DeafBlind Community Access Network (DBCAN) program at DEAF, Inc. We are looking for Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Hearing people who are interested in working with DeafBlind people as Support Service Providers.
Providers work with independent DeafBlind adults in many regions across Massachusetts. Currently, we are looking for providers to work in the Boston area, Western Mass (Springfield, and Chicopee) as well as the Southeast region. Specifically, we are looking for a woman in the Boston area who is available to work weekends – Friday through Sunday, someone to work in Western Mass available weekdays during the day (gender doesn’t matter), and the same applies for Southeast.
For more information you can go to our website, www.deafinconline.org/DBCAN, where you’ll also find the application as well as a description of provider duties and how to work with DeafBlind individuals.
At this time due to the coronavirus pandemic, DBCAN staff will offer trainings virtually through Zoom or Video Phone (VP).
If you have questions after looking at the information on the website, please feel free to contact DBCAN staff. Thank you!
