Advocating for Inclusion
Recently, staff members of Deaf Access Services, an affiliate of People Inc., and People Inc. staff met with Buffalo Mayor Byron W. Brown to discuss the many ways our agencies can work together to make the city more accessible to the Deaf and hard of hearing community. We are grateful to everyone who helped to make this meeting possible! It was a great step towards making the City of Buffalo even more inclusive.
Deaf Access Services is the only non-profit organization in Western New York that bridges gaps in services and communication among the Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing communities. The agency continues to provide services remotely, due to the pandemic, so that its clientele and businesses can access critical services. These include interpreting, advocacy, employment readiness, educational supports for students, assistive devices and American Sign Language classes. To learn more, contact, call 716.833.1637 or videophone at 716.335.9192. Program information and event updates are posted on the Deaf Access Services Facebook page.
