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.
