After 18 years of operation, we regret to inform you that the Midwest Center on Law and the Deaf (MCLD) will be closing due to lack of funding and limited available resources. It was very difficult for the MCLD Board of Directors to reach this decision to close, but the Board was unable to find any feasible way to maintain MCLD operations.
We thank our supporters who have been with us since day one and all of you who have joined us along the way. Without you, we would not have been able to provide information and referrals as well as educational services to thousands of deaf and hard of hearing individuals. A special thank you to the Chicago Bar Association which has supported MCLD during its entire existence.
We’re also pleased to announce that any future needs for information and referrals will be handled by the National Association of the Deaf. To obtain assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 301-587-1788.
