Our Mission

We recognize that deaf refugees have unique needs that are best served and assisted by the general Deaf community. Our mission is to collaborate and serve as a bridge with current organizations and agencies to ensure inclusion of Deaf refugees into our Rochester Deaf community and into general society by providing assistance as they strive to be self-sustaining neighbors while still retaining their own cultural heritage, identity, language, and religion.


What We Do

We help both long-time and newly resettled Deaf refugees become independent and adjusted to life in Rochester through a variety of programs and classes. We also work as advocates for the needs of our Deaf refugees, especially as liaisons with other agencies and providers in Rochester.

​Our team of volunteers provide the following:

Educational Programs • Client Services • Social and cultural events
