The Louisiana Commission for the Deaf (LCD)

The Louisiana Commission for the Deaf (LCD) provides people who are d/Deaf, DeafBlind, and hard of hearing with programs, services, and resources to ensure full communication access to the world around them. Staff work closely with members of the d/Deaf, DeafBlind, and hard of hearing communities to continuously improve programs and services to meet their needs.

Mission, Vision, and Values

In 2021, LCD developed its new Mission, Vision, and Values through a stakeholder-driven, six-month process that is integral to an organization.
