Welcome to Houston Deaf Network!

It’s time, friends and foes! A time to rise up, unite resources, build support, educate and especially be “heard” by those who live in Houston.

Sign & Deaf Culture Club Day at The Downtown Aquarium

Our Lone Star College-CyFair Sign & Deaf Culture Club has decided to utilize the discount below to create an LSC-CF Social for our ASL/ITP students. Please feel free to pass this along to the Deaf community as well. Let’s meet at 1:00pm outside of the ticket booth! If you are with an LSC-CyFair student or faculty member who has a name badge or an ID, that person can have an unlimited number of guests who can benefit from the school’s discount. We can make our social from 1:00-5:00 pm and if people decide they would like to stay longer or arrive earlier, they are welcome to do so. We hope to see you there! continue »
