Message from the Executive Director

Hello. Welcome to DeafConnect of the Mid-South, in Memphis, Tennessee. My name is De Linda Brite; I am the new executive director here. Welcome to our new website, we are so excited about new features including more pictures and videos that you can enjoy watching. Go ahead and take a look at our new website and let us know what you think. What does DeafConnect do? We provide interpreter referral services by sending interpreters to businesses and organizations or whatever you need one. We also provide a system and individual advocacy, information and referral, and community outreach. Lastly, we provide employment which includes filling out resumes, job search, and preparing for an interview. There are so much more that we do but go ahead and look around on our website. If you see something that you are not sure if we could assist you with something, please contact us because we are happy to help! Again, welcome to DeafConnect!
