ABUSED DEAF WOMENS ADVOCACY SERVICES
December 11, 2009
I started working with the staff of ADWAS in a professional capacity in 2006 when they were developing and building their new transitional housing program. I was impressed with their ability to quickly and efficiently get their program going within the strict government and funding guidelines, as well as following all of the local landlord/tenant laws and Section 8 requirements. There are a lot of details to manage, and the ADWAS staff jumped right in to learn and put into practice what they needed to do.
On top of all of the requirements was a true passion for serving women and children in the Deaf community who had been abused. Their services are offered in a culturally appropriate environment, taking into consideration the specific needs and requirements of people who are Deaf. They work to empower their clients while helping them improve their lives.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
ADWAS is consistently moving forward and looking ahead to what they can do to best meet the needs of their clients. They are well managed administratively as well as from a services standpoint.
