Tri-County GLAD, a subsidiary of the Greater Los Angeles Agency on Deafness, Inc., is an agency that addresses the broad social service needs of deaf and hard of hearing individuals covering three counties: Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo. We provide Advocacy, Communication Access, Peer Counseling, Employment Development, Information and Referrals, Independent Living Skills and Community Education services for the deaf and hard of hearing community. Our Community Education program provides educational, informational, and training workshops to the public. Tri County GLAD also does community outreach by being a liaison between the community and organizations; providing social gatherings, hosting booths at events and fairs and expanding service to traditionally neglected areas. Tri-County GLAD is sailing with winds of change and empowerment for individuals in every aspect.
