ASADV: Advocacy Services for Abused Deaf Victims
Our mission is to provide support to the Deaf community and to Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and Hard of Hearing individuals, families, and children who are or have been victims/survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual abuse.
We offer a safe and supportive environment of advocacy, empowerment, community education, and training services.
All of our staff are Deaf. All of our staff, advocates, and volunteers are fluent in American Sign Language (ASL).
It is our vision that the various components of ASADV be Deaf-run and be advocates within institutionalized systems. We work cooperatively with various Deaf and hearing-based agencies.
