In Person Services by Appointment Only
Our Las Cruces and Albuquerque offices are open for in person services by appointment only. Masks are still required, and clients may bring only one guest.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 505.228.7710 (voice) or 505.435.9319 (VP for sign language users) Monday-Friday 8am to 4:30pm so we can assist you, or check the Staff Members page for our individual email addresses to request an appointment.
Our COVID-19 Resources Page has information specific to the Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and DeafBlind community. For general questions, please visit the New Mexico Department of Health website or contact them by phone. The Coronavirus Hotline is 855.600.3453 and the line for non-health related COVID-19 questions is 833.551.0518.
Accepting Forms Digitally
NMCDHH encourages our clients to complete and return documents electronically. If you have access to a printer and scanner, please print the document, fill it out and sign it, scan it (preferably as a PDF if possible) and email it back to us. If you can print but not scan, we will accept photos of documents – please make sure they are clearly in focus and readable. Many of our forms are fillable PDFs so that they can be completed on your computer or tablet, digitally signed, and returned via email.
We have an extensive list of resources related to COVID-19 on this page.
Technology is changing rapidly, and so is the equipment offered through our Telecommunication Equipment Distribution Program (TEDP). We are excited to announce some new additions to our program in the coming months – we will feature those new products here as they become available.
