What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our mission is bridging gaps to improve the quality of life of those affected by hearing loss. Our organization is working to address barriers that would deter Deaf and Hard of Hearing community members from a high quality of life. Barriers often include communication, accessibility, isolation, and possible misunderstanding of the strengths and challenges of navigating through spaces that are more often designed for a hearing community. In addition to providing services for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, we work to promote education and awareness of hearing loss and diversity and inclusion to various organizations, businesses, industries and the community-at-large. TSHA is a non-profit, Tulsa Area United Way member agency with 65+ years of experience in providing information and support programs for those who have a hearing loss. TSHA also provides services for interested individuals: family, friends, employers, employees, and those wanting to learn sign language.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

TSHA's goal are to increase the independence and self-sufficiency of people with hearing loss, offer programming and services that aid in enhancing Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals lives, provide unbiased resources for families to make the most effective choices for their family member impacted by hearing loss. In addition, our goal is to remove barriers to communication and accessibility - especially via our Intepreting Services department.

Our current strategies include building capacity in department areas to continue to meet the demand for services, continue promoting awareness and education through our experiential Deaf Deaf World presentation, increase our work with employers and organizations to ensur they understand the need for budgeting for services for the Deaf and Hard of Heawring, and to continue to do needs assessments to ensure we are provide relevant programming and services for the Deaf, Hard of Hearing and their families.

The organization has recently undergone a reorganization to ensure we have the right positions within the organization to serve the community. In the past two years, we have increased our team's training, department collaboration, and begun to increase our community partnerships for cross-collaboration to increase our resources and effectiveness to serve our clients. We are also beginning to increase our development and resource efforts to expand and grow to meet the needs of our clients and the community-at-large with our programs and services.

In 2019:
*100% of Deaf Services consumers created and implemented a self-sufficiency plan for resolving barrier for independence.
*90% of low income seniors reduced their risk of isolation by being fit with a hearing aid.
*93% of Deaf Deaf World attendees increased awareness of the challenges and frustrations that Deaf and Hard of Hearing people experience every day.
*89% of interpreter requests were provided, allowing for businesses, organizations, employers, educators, and more to communicate with Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals and their families within everyday situations.
