Who We Are

DEAF EQUITY is a non-profit organization that serves the Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing community.

 

We are an all volunteer based organization working in the community, partnering with organizations, training volunteers and accepting projects that fit our core values.  

 

How are we unique?  

We believe in YOU!  We believe in partnerships.  We work on the small things.

BE KIND DO GOOD CREW_edited.jpg

We work on projects that will grow the community, have a greater impact and influence, and do GOOD in the community.  We see the bigger picture - an infrastructure of people who just need someone or an organization to have their back.  It MAY sounds impossible but it is not!  We have amazing volunteers giving back to our community - one person, and one organization at a time. 

If this is your type of organization, please support us!
