    This has been long time coming… ADWAS is excited to announce that the National Deaf Hotline Services has been expanded to 24/7. Our hours are no longer limited to Monday – Friday and from 9AM- 5PM (PCT). We would like to share this information to the Deaf, DeafBlind, DeafDisabled, and Hard-of-Hearing community by distributing and sharing this accessible resource that is readily made available for the survivors, family members & friends, and service providers.

    With that said, the purpose of this email is to share with you our brochures and this YOUTUBE link that you can use to post on your website, your agency’s Facebook page, or to have your staff personally share this on social media. The video is subtitled to accommodate various viewers. Your efforts in distributing this resource is greatly appreciated!
