Advisory Committee

The Silent Garden’s advisory committee exists to help The Silent Garden tap into existing community resources and use their networks and relationships to grow The Silent Garden at Fresno State. Meeting annually, committee members are familiar with the Fresno, Madera, Merced, Kings, Kern or Tulare County area's social service and economic development needs of the Deaf and hard of hearing in the region, work collaboratively and provide a diversity of ideas. Each member of the committee are valued ambassadors for the Silent Garden in our community.
