Minnesota to close a regional Deaf and Hard of Hearing Service Center


ROCHESTER, Minn. -- The Rochester division of Minnesota's Deaf and Hard of Hearing Service Center is closing its doors.

The service center assists individuals, who are deaf, hard of hearing and deaf-blind.

A representative for the state's Department of Human Services, told the NewsCenter it's the only office in the state closing, due to budget reductions.

The office currently employs two people.

The state hopes to re-establish them at the Mankato office, where all of the current clients will be sent.

As of November 30th the office will be closed for good.
