About Deaf Services Center

Deaf Services Center, Inc. (DSC) empowers those faced with language barriers by promoting access to communication. Our resources help those who have hearing loss or are non-English users to fully access the English language in communicating with others. Headquartered in central Ohio, with satellite offices serving the northwest and southeast areas of the state DSC is the largest provider of services for the Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Deaf-Blind in Ohio. A 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, DSC works hard to empower the communities we serve.

The History behind Our Logo

DSC’s original logo was designed with four arrows pointing toward a center focal point. These arrows represent the Deaf Community, DSC Board and Staff, The Hearing Community, and DSC Programs and Services. The arrows point from the outside to the middle showing that we all work together toward a common goal of collaboration in providing our communities with the highest standard of service.

Moving Toward the Future

As time goes by, DSC has grown by leaps and bounds. We have added many programs and services over the years to meet the changing needs of the communities we serve. Our new logo captures the essence of the four arrows in a modern updated look. While the green and gray arrows still represent the original concept, the arrow created by the white space in between represents our movement forward. By embracing the past and updating our logo, DSC is ready to face the future to empower the communities we serve.
