FAD Deaf Club


A group of Deaf men living in the Flint area organized a social club in 1919.  Since then FAD has changed locations a few times to it's current location off Bristol Road in Flint.


The wives of the men founded the FAD Ladies Auxilary in 1935 for deaf women residing in Genesee County and the Greater Flint Area.
