Individuals with varying degrees of hearing and vision loss known as DeafBlind have always dreamt of a safe, fun, barrier-free place where they could learn from each other and gain rich experiences. It is no longer a dream! 

Our Mission

To empower people who are DeafBlind through equal opportunities to live full and productive lives, including full access to employment, technology, education, and socialization to reduce isolation.

Our vision

To create a world where DeafBlind individuals explore their environment, make empowered autonomous decisions, and have access to the world around them.

our history

Jacqueline Izaguirre, Kim Huston, Todd Huston, Kelly Brittingham, and Andrew Cohen met in early March 2016 to form DeafBlind Camp of Texas (DBCTX). Hayley Broadway and Kris Lund were recruited as the first SSP Coordinators. The very first DBCTX was held at Variety's Peaceable Kingdom on September 2nd to September 5th, 2016. Nearly 40 people including 10 DeafBlind individuals and 25 Support Service Providers participated in this magical journey! In 2023, the organization changed its name to DeafBlind Community of Texas to reflect all of the various activities engaging the community.

Why the armadillo?

For those of you not from Texas, you may not know that Armadillos are the Official State Small Mammal of Texas.

Armadillos are nearly blind and deaf; one may say that they are legally blind and hard of hearing. In spite of their vision and hearing ability, Armadillos have no trouble working out what's going on around them!   

For these reasons, we can't think of a better mascot for DeafBlind Community of Texas than the Armadillo!
