The work that the people of ADWAS do is an incredible contribution to both the deaf and hearing communities. The staff is well trained in assisting deaf, deaf-blind, and hard of hearing women (and men) through times of crisis and in finding hope. The services provided there benefit people around the country and internationally. ADWAS is also a model for other domestic violence/sexual assault advocacy agencies and shelters as they strive to meet the needs of such an underserved population. Keep it up, ADWAS!

I am incredibly impressed with the founder, staff and facilities of ADWAS. The people who founded this agency and breathed life into it did it with vision and foresight. Also, with alot of chutzpah -- taking on a huge challenge to raise money and build a beautiful building. The people served are so lucky to have the housing and support ADWAS offers. The TTY line is like no other! I have watched ADWAS for many years and have helped financially when I could, but mostly I've just been interested and a cheerleader from the sidelines.

I have volunteered with this organization since its inception in 1986. I have over 41 years of work in the non-profit sector and this organization is one of the best I have ever experienced. Their priority is the people they serve; their service model has been replicated in 47 cities in the United States; the staff are paid well and provided fabulous support; and they manage the organization and provide services from a feminist point of view.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping them raise $8.6M to build the first accessible transitional housing for Deaf and Deaf-Blind domestic violence survivors in the world.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

How they treat the people they serve, their politics, how they value donors and volunteers, and their willingness to share their experiences and talents with other organizations.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Diverse, highly skilled, and with big hearts.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Oh my God...it could replicate its model in other Deaf communities around the U.S. and Deaf communities in other countries. They could establish an endowment so that the fluctuation in government support doesn't affect their service levels.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
