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 download a DCI brochure, click here.

DCI's Web site is www.deafcenteridaho.org.  Anyone can visit the Web site and download documents relating to DCI.  The site also explains how to make donations to DCI.

  • To establish a safe place for all people who have or would like to have connections within the deaf and hard-of-hearing community, and offer the following services:
    • information and referral
