Who We Are
D.E.A.F., Inc. encourages and empowers Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals to lead independent and productive lives. We offer a comprehensive package of programs and services in a supportive community environment that is linguistically and culturally accessible for Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals from diverse ethnic and cultural populations.
Where We Are
D.E.A.F., Inc. is headquartered in Allston (Boston), MA and operates satellite offices in 4 distinct regions statewide. Each office provides Deaf and Hard of Hearing Independent Living and related services, and is staffed by community members trained in the provision of these services.
We recently joined the growing number of agencies to install a local area network. This was a giant step forward when we purchased 15 new Pentium II PCs, 2 laser printers, and MS- Office software.
Purchase of this new equipment has brought D.E.A.F., Inc. to a higher level of efficiency and service provision. We are able to utilize e-mail and current software packages to reduce paperwork and expedite communications. As a result, our new computer training experience will expand our offerings to workshops on the Internet, word processing, etc. and will enable consumers to become more independent in this technology driven society.
D.E.A.F., Inc was founded by Deaf leaders from the National Association of the Deaf and the Massachusetts State Association of the Deaf and has served the Boston Metropolitan community since 1977. It is one of the first multi-service community based agencies run by and for people who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. D.E.A.F., Inc is primarily funded by donations, grassroots fundraising events, and United Way of Massachusetts Bay.
