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

Rating: 5 stars  

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!!!

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

I have so enjoyed seeing this agency grow and it's influence spread throughout our country by being a model for other cities, providing direct access to services for people who are Deaf, Deaf-Blind etc.

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

I have met the most stellar staff & volunteers. People I've met are committed to making a difference in our world & not afraid of rolling up their sleeves and working hard to accomplish it!

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

It could expand services here in Washington State and around the U.S. There is a constant need for transitional and safe housing for women & children.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
