A Central New York company that provides services to people who are deaf and hard of hearing is now open at its new location.

“Whole Me” is now in a new location on James Street in Syracuse— they help more than 500 people across Upstate New York with after-school programs for children, advocacy programs for adults, and sign language interpreters.

The new home will help them help even more people—including more refugees who are hard of hearing.

“Here there’s an opportunity for children to socialize and use their primary language of American Sign Language and it is so important to have use of their own language,” said Lindsay Ryan Anthony, youth program co-director.

Leaders at “Whole Me” say they’ve been asked to set up programs in other states, but want to make sure their programs are all set in Syracuse first.
