SSP Services in New Mexico
We are excited to announce that the new vendor providing Support Service Provider (SSP) services for our DeafBlind, Deaf Plus, and Deaf Senior community is Vancro. Over the past few months, one of the goals of the Commission has been to find a vendor that provides these important services to our DeafBlind, Deaf Plus, and Deaf Senior community with most of the same faces that you have all come to know and appreciate as the SSP’s. The other goal has been to find a vendor who has the background and experience to continue improving the user experience and expand the services to those who need SSPs. As the selected vendor, Vancro will provide these services to this specific community that has already been receiving these services, and will also be reaching out to the community who need and want these services. They are also looking to expand the number of available SSP’s to go with their core group and providing the necessary training and support to provide our DeafBlind, Deaf Plus, and Deaf Senior community in the state with quality services.
If you want to know more about becoming an SSP or request these services you can call via VP at 505-435-9283, or voice/text at 505-934-2594. Vancro also can be reached at NMDeafBlindServices@vancro.com. To see the Vancro Message in ASL with captions please visit here- https://youtu.be/YxbEtmHyb3Y.
