Big News …  Guide By Your Side program is happening!

We are thrilled to announce that Alabama Hands & Voices is launching a Hands & Voices Guide By Your Side program! Ours will be the 26th Guide By Your Side (GBYS) program.  Check it out at http://www.handsandvoices.org/gbys/index.htm.  We are very thankful to the Alabama Department of Public Health/Alabama Newborn Screening Program for providing us with a grant to start this program!  This grant enables us to hire several Parent Guides across Alabama to participate in Hands & Voices GBYS training and provide support to fellow parents.  Applicants must be parents of children who are deaf or hard of hearing.  Applications are due January 8, 2019.  Letter, application, and job description are attached.  Please forward to anyone who you think may be interested.  Please send applications to alabamahinfo@gmail.com  Please reach out to us at this e-mail address with any questions.
