“THE SIGN THAT BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER”
Deaf Access Services (DAS) is focused on providing services to create a bridge between the Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Hearing communities through Advocacy, Community Education, Community Employment, Technology Assistance and Interpreting Services that promote equal access.

Our office is located inside the Tri-Main Building (Suite 446) on Main Street in Buffalo, NY. Our office is open Monday through Friday from 9:00am – 4:00pm.
