Oregon Deaf Empowerment and Advocacy for Families

We would like to take this opportunity to answer some questions that many of you are asking regarding who we are and what we are doing?

ODEAF is a new organization.  Our goal is to provide services for d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing women, children and their families who may be experiencing domestic violence and/or sexual assault.

The foundation of ODEAF has been an ongoing vision from the Board Members and surrounding abundance of support.  Allies, such as:

-Abused Deaf Women Advocacy Services-ADWAS (adwas@adwas.org)
-Womenspace-WS (info@womenspaceinc.org)
-Lane County Department of Children and Families (DCF@co.lane.or.us)
-All Hands Interpreting Services (allhandsinterpretingsvcs@comcast.net)/ Deaf Services (deafservices@allhandseugene.com)
-Indian Education Program, Title VII (lananderson@siuslaw.k12.or.us)
-Sign Language Classes for Adults/Babies (speakinghands@comcast.net)

All have contributed to the growth and development stages of ODEAF.

Currently, ODEAF is in the process of gaining its non-profit status.  So, please check our website periodically for updates on our progress.
