Following the listening session, How do we support and grow the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Recovery Community?, the Peer Recovery Center of Excellence, in partnership with Communities for Recovery, is hosting monthly virtual networking space to continue the conversation. Our hope is to gather community stakeholders - members of the DHH community in or seeking recovery, DHH peer recovery support workers, professionals serving the DHH recovery community, and leaders interested in growing the infrastructure and support for the DHH peer recovery specialist workforce - to discuss what is working and identifying potential solutions to the barriers the DHH peer workforce is facing.
