Mockingbird Community and Retirement Center’s mission is to build a retirement environment which also acts as a community center for social and recreational activities for the Deaf, Deaf-Blind, Hard of Hearing, and late-deafened individuals living in the region. A staff will support all services and will be able to communicate effectively with all who live there or who use its facilities. All critical staff will be able to communicate with American Sign Language (ASL). All staff will be trained in working with Hard of Hearing individuals. The center will also have available qualified sign language interpreters on site.
