Minnesota Hands and Voices



Founded in 1948, Lifetrack works together to develop the strengths within those facing the greatest challenges so that all people are strong, healthy and productive members of the community through two focus areas: Child & Family Healthy Development and Employment & Economic Opportunity.

MN Hands & Voices was created in November of 2000. Our staff are all parents of diverse children who are deaf and hard of hearing. We share the same emotions, decisions and questions as the families we serve. Rather than representing ourselves as experts, our staff keeps abreast of who the experts are and how to access their knowledge. Our staff is committed to providing a balanced look at raising a child who is deaf or hard of hearing. Families who have chosen to not use amplification, chosen to obtain a cochlear implant, who sign, cue, or use oral language are all respected and supported. It is our strong belief that parents know what is best for their child. Parents simply need enough information to make sound, informed choices.
