Learn About Connecting with CareCoaches
Am I/my family eligible?
Your family resides in North Carolina
Your child (or a child you provide care for) has a diagnosis of hearing loss (any type or degree)
What are my responsibilities?
You must abide by the Community Guidelines.
Who are CareCoaches?
CareCoaches are family members of children who are deaf or hard of hearing. They have volunteered to mentor eligible families. CareCoaches can share experiences and stories to help guide families as they learn about a child’s diagnosis, look for health care options and discover community resources.

Does it cost money?
No, the TCP Care Connect service is free and supported by volunteers who know how important it can be to have someone share experiences and information.
Is my privacy protected?

How is communication handled?
