Review for Abused Deaf Womens Advocacy Services, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
