About CAN

The Communication Advocacy Network Corporation (CAN) was incorporated on April 29, 2005 in Connecticut as a non-profit charitable organization to address the rights and needs of Deaf, Hard-of Hearing, Deaf-Blind, and Serves people who have acquired hearing loss or born with deaf or hard-of-hearing conditions and adults from all walks of life. CAN's primary purpose is to advocate for the D/deaf and ensure those services most citizens take for granted are accessible to all citizens.

Mission Statement

"To provide a centralized statewide agency with auxiliary support services for deaf, hard-of-hearing, deaf-blind, and persons with hearing losses, regardless of race, age, and gender such that they can be provided opportunities to succeed in areas of employment; education; housing; economics; and independence; and also, be provided legal and fair judicial representation which are seldom provided. Such opportunities and legal rights are currently not obtainable or are being denied."
