Main Office TDD: (772)-335-9966
The Deaf Service Center is now a Regional Distribution Center for the FTRI phones on loan program. In the past, people would have to wait 6-8 weeks to get their phones via UPS. Now, you can come to the St. Lucie or Vero Beach office, fill out an application, and take the phone home with you. Please call the St. Lucie office to make an appointment. Also broken phones can be replaced on the spot.
Hearing Aids Needed
The DSC is looking for donations of used hearing aids for our hearing aid bank. They accept any type and in any condition. The DSC works with a local audiologist who refurbishes them and then they are given to people in the community who could not otherwise afford them. The DSC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit so they can give the donor a receipt so the value can be taken off their taxes.
