A New Name and a New Logo

Please share with your organization!
Understanding that our dream of comfortable, safe, affordable housing for NJ’s Deaf should include people of all ages, on July 26, 2018, the State of New Jersey officially recognized our new name, New Jersey Deaf Housing, Inc. Realizing that our demographics have changed considerably, our land search has broadened beyond Morris County, to include properties in Union, Ocean and Middlesex counties, while still keeping our eyes on a centralized site that will be affordable, and offer proximity to medical facilities, shopping and public transportation.
Kevin Munn, our new Vice President of Publicity, created our new logo, beautifully symbolizing NJDH’s focus on diversity and hope within our Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Deaf Blind and Late Deafened Communities.
Faces, logos and names change, but our “story” moves steadily forward… with the same motto our first president, Lila Taylor, used so many times: “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work”. When we break ground for our new residence, it will be called “Lila’s Place” in her honor.
