Creating New Worlds for Children and Adults with Deafness, Hearing and Vision Loss
The Holley Institute, founded in 1993, is devoted to serving the Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and Hard  of Hearing.

The Institute is closely affiliated with St. John Hospital & Medical Center and has two facilities. The Center for Communication Excellence located in St. John Hospital & Medical Center serves as the hub for the Institute. It is here that we screen all newborns for hearing loss, set up ASL classes in all of St. John/Providence hospitals, and advocate for the Deaf, in particular our Deaf patients. During the winter and spring months our Program Director organizes all summer programs here at the Center.

The Carls Family Village is our other facility. It is here that we carry out all of our summer programs and take rental requests for the building outside of our programs.


Spectrum II Gathering

Spectrum II Gathering 

Sunday, June 25 - Friday, June 30, 2017

There will be a GATHERING coming on June 25 -30, 2017 that is called SPECTRUM II in Brooklyn, Michigan. Because, there was the first Spectrum: Focus on Deaf Artists in the early 1970s in Austin, Texas, we feel it is time to bring back Spectrum again and reunite. Attached is a link that tells you a bit about the history of Spectrum: Focus on Deaf Artists https://deviacurr.wordpress.com/devia-curr/devia-history-2/spectrum-1975-1980s/ 

The flyer shows that this is a five-day gathering which includes Deaf artists, poets, filmmakers and performers to gather and work together. There will be more details soon. This is a SAVE THE DATE announcement. If this seems to be of interest to you, please let me know. We hope and look forward to seeing you.
