Office for hearing impaired opening

POSTED: February 9, 2008 5:03 a.m.

The Georgia Council for the Hearing Impaired is opening an office in Hinesville.
The organization, established in 1989, maintains a system of statewide services for deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind, and other individuals with whom they interact.
Advocacy services are offered to ensure that hearing impaired individuals receive accommodations they need to communicate with the hearing world. Through their GATED program, telecommunication devices are distributed free of charge through the Public Service Commission of Georgia.
Each year, a camp is offered for hard of hearing/deaf youth and teens to promote leadership skills and offer   social opportunities. Individual instruction and educational support is given in preparation for the Georgia high school, general educational development and adult basic education tests.
The office here will serve Appling, Bacon, Brantley, Bryan, Bulloch, Camden, Candler, Charlton, Chatham, Effingham, Emmanuel, Evans, Glynn, Jeff Davis, Jenkins, Johnson,  Liberty, Long, McIntosh, Montgomery, Pierce, Screven, Tattnall, Toombs, Treutlen, Ware, Wayne and  Wheeler counties.
The grand opening will be from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be between 11:30 a.m. and noon. The business is at 913 EG Miles Parkway, Unit A1.
