Hands & Voices is a parent driven organization that supports families with children
who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing without a bias around
communication modes or methodology.
The Georgia Hands & Voices Guide By Your Side (GBYS) Program
provides unbiased, emotional support and resources to families of
children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
by trained
Parent Guides.

sponsoring organizations that we pass on through our website that we feel might be of interest to our constituency. These events
and information may not necessarily reflect the viewpoint of Hands & Voices, and relies on our membership to deem what is of
