I have learned of ADWAS in 1996 when the Executive Director came to NAD Youth Leadership Camp to present about their services, and I was impressed by how much they've done with limited funds and resources. After I moved to Seattle in 2003, I had gotten myself involved as a board member (briefly) as well as a donor and as an associate board member. What continues to amaze me is the PASSION by the board, staff and most especially the community. It was the community that truly believed in ADWAS mission, integrity and trust that they invested their energy in raising funds for a new building / home of its own. And ADWAS is often looked upon as a role model across the nation as with replicating its programs and services. ADWAS and its sister organizations are unique in its own regard for the specialized service that is often absent in the deaf, hard of hearing and deafblind communities, including breaking through barriers and building relationships.

I love ADWAS! I cannot possibly put into words how great the agency & it's staff are. From the executive director to the many volunteers, there is passion, energy & excitement in the services they provide. I've had opportunity to interact with ADWAS in a variety of roles. My first exposure was about 15+ years ago when asked to join their board. From that point on I've been a supporter of ADWAS as volunteer, donor, community participant. Having this agency: service providers who are Deaf, providing direct services to others who are Deaf is powerful!!! Their impact on lessening violence in our world, one woman, one child, one family at a time is incredible!!!
