Children of Deaf Adults, INC. 

CODA celebrates the unique heritage and
identities of adult hearing
individuals with deaf parent(s).

CODA Memorial


CODA established a Memorial Fund to honor those who have touched us either as CODA International members,
fellow codas or those who have supported and nurtured our coda identities.
This fund contributes directly supporting Codas to attend CODA conferences.
Codas, family and supporters named in memorial who have passed away will also be honored in a live ceremony
during the annual CODA conference.

In memory of those honorees who gave to us so that we might enrich others.
