Ulitsa Galernaia, Dom 55
Under the auspices of the Russian Society for the Deaf, and with the cooperation of local committees on labour and social defense, an employment agency for the deaf is slated to begin operations in St. Petersburg. The agency will place deaf employees in positions in private companies, with a special focus on the textiles industry. The city's employment database will be used to seek job openings for deaf workers.
