The Chicago Hearing Society (CHS), a division of Anixter Center, has provided vital services for people who are Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing for over 100 years.

CHS is a leader in advocacy and services for people who are Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing throughout Illinois. CHS serves people who would otherwise have no place to turn: from ASL interpreter services, to domestic violence assistance, to youth services, ASL classes, an audiology clinic, and more. CHS bridges the gap between the Deaf and hearing communities.
