What is DCI?
On March 31, 2007, Cami Wilding, an ambitious Idaho Deaf
community leader set out to establish an organization that will evolve into a
robust direct service portal for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals. The
first objective is to secure funding and facilities for a gathering place in
which these services can be provided.
Since March, the DCI has officially become a non-profit
corporation and has held several events, including fund raisers. The
officers of DCI are aggressively looking for funding and working to establish
the foundation on which DCI will flourish for many years to come. To
