Welcome to The Family Village
Since 1996, thousands of Deaf, Deaf/Blind and Hard of Hearing children, adults and their families from across North America have visited The Holley Institute's Family Village.
This beautiful, lakefront setting in Brooklyn, Michigan provides a serene environment where children and their parents can learn, grow and overcome challenges associated with hearing and vision loss.
Residential programs offer unique educational and mentoring opportunities. These include: education for families with Deaf children, Youth Leadership, Art initiatives for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students, Self advocacy workshops for Deaf/Blind adults, and classes in American Sign Language.
The Holley Institute partners with the Oblates of St Francis de Sales who own the property, Lawrence Lodge, the Chapel, and hermitages. When not in use non profits may rent one or all buildings for retreats, conferences or workshops.
