About this Organization

Abused Deaf Women’s Advocacy Services (ADWAS) provides advocacy and support to deaf, deaf-blind, and hard-of-hearing persons who are or were victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault. ADWAS also provides preventive services such as a Positive Deaf Parenting Program, a Children’s Program, and community education. The organization currently has a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice to offer training in cities in the United States to help set up local organizations similar to ADWAS.
