SHEP is a non-profit organization for people who care about people who are deafblind. 

There are two types of membership

DB Silver Membership: This includes persons who are Deaf-blind, their parents/guardians, and adult siblings.  Provides 2 hours of SSP service a month with mileage cap.  Membership lasts 3 months.  When you join SHEP, you join a group that has a large network of people throughout the state who will provide support and knowledge.  It is your ticket out of the isolation where can meet others who have some of the same issues and who can offer tips and listen with understanding.


SHEP is exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  Our tax ID is 45-1494393.

Contributions to SHEP will be used in a number of ways:

  • Funding for our future intervener program

  • Funding towards community enrichment

  • Funding for SSP training

  • Funding for research and development into Deaf-blind assistance professions
