Our mission: to enable each person who is deaf-blind to live, work, and thrive in their community of choice.
WHAT'S NEW at HKNC?
HKNC would like to thank The Community Chest of Port Washington for their recent support of our Destiny Home, a residence that supports the lifestyles of five individuals who are deaf-blind with intellectual disabilities. The Community Chest was established in 1949 to raise funds for charities serving the Port Washington community.
