V.O.I.C.E., Inc. began in 1984 in Saginaw, Michigan as a sign language interpreter referral agency with 2 staff members. We expanded in the 1990s to 5 employees and now employ over 55 employees. Since our beginning, our focus has been on advancing equal access to effective communication for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing members in Michigan. Our greatest source of satisfaction is seeing individuals with disabilities achieve real independence through equal access to opportunity!
While providing American Sign Language interpreters has historically been the primary function of V.O.I.C.E., Inc., the 2000s have witnessed an expansion of services including interpreting services, employment services and in-home care in the Great Lakes Bay Region and across Michigan.
