Mission Statement

Our mission at DeafHope is to end domestic violence and sexual assault against Deaf women and children through empowerment, education and services.

Description

Deaf women in January 2003. Our mission will be achieved on three levels - by providing services to Deaf women and children who are survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault; by educating our local community and service providers about domestic violence and sexual assault; and by providing statewide training and technical assistance to establish more Deaf-run DV/SA services for Deaf survivors of domestic and sexual violence. At DeafHope we rely on the empowerment model. We believe that Deaf women and children are not responsible for violence, and they have a right to live in a healthy environment. We believe that Deaf survivors have the ability and right to make their own choices toward living independently and safely. As advocates, we provide support and information, working with her strengths, but only the survivor can make the best choices for her and her family.
