Our mission: to enable each person who is deaf-blind to live, work, and thrive in their community of choice.




HKNC would like to thank The Community Chest of Port Washington for their recent support of our Destiny Home, a residence that houses five individuals who are deaf-blind with intellectual disabilities. The Community Chest was established in 1949 to raise funds for charities serving the Port Washington community.   For more information about The Community Chest of Port Washington, please visit their website at http://www.portchest.org/
