The Washington State Office of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (ODHH) is excited to announce two new positions: Case Management Field Supervisor; and Case Management Team Lead.

As a part of ODHH’s continuing commitment to providing services and support to Washingtonians, some changes will be impacting the Regional Service Centers (RSCs). The RSCs will continue to offer case management and client services in Seattle, Tacoma, Bellingham, Tri-Cities, and Spokane. To ensure that the needs of all Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing individuals are met, ODHH will be transitioning case management services in the Vancouver region to ODHH staff positions over the next several months.

ODHH is working on gathering your feedback. We welcome your input as ODHH works to ensure that case management and client services in the Vancouver area are sustained. We will provide Vancouver residents opportunities to meet with our team and discuss their needs in the coming weeks.

These recruitments are open for hire! If you, or someone you know, is interested in pursuing these roles and has excellent leadership skills and the experience and passion for working with people of diverse backgrounds, come join us at ODHH!

Thank you,
