Where we came from:
CDHH was founded in 1977 as the “Deaf Center” under the C.E.T.A. Program to serve as a communication bridge between the deaf and hearing communities of York and Adams counties. In December of 1979, it officially became a ministry of Lutheran Social Services of South Central Pennsylvania. By 1992 the Center had served 272 deaf clients and 4,285 hearing clients. Today CDHH serves deaf and hard of hearing clients throughout York County.
