Our Mission

We recognize that deaf refugees, asylum-seekers, immigrants, and those from US territories have unique needs that are best served and assisted by the members of the general Deaf community. Our mission is to

  1. provide direct services (education and case management services),
  2. promote advocacy and full language access for this population, and
  3. provide outreach services (collaboration, consultation, and education) to existing community service organizations and agencies.

We aim to support them as they strive to be self‐sustaining neighbors while still retaining their own cultural heritage, identity, language, and religion. Furthermore, we wish to ensure their inclusion into our Deaf community and into general society.

What We Do

We help both long-time and newly resettled Deaf people become independent and adjusted to life in USA through a variety of programs and classes. We also work as advocates for their needs, especially as liaisons with other agencies and service providers.

​Our team of volunteers provide the following:

Educational Programs • Client Services • Social and cultural events
