Family Resources


The Learning Center for the Deaf would like to provide a voluntary sign up sheet as a way for our community to directly connect with each other and share general support, including childcare or ASL tutoring. This sign up sheet may also be helpful for those who are new to the TLC community.

Emergency Broadband Benefit

The FCC has announced that beginning May 12, eligible households will be able to apply for the Emergency Broadband Benefit, an emergency program to help families and households struggling to afford internet service during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program will end once the program funds are exhausted, or six months after the Department of Health and Human Services declares an end to the pandemic, whichever comes first.
