Deaf Latinos y Familias Organization’s Mission:
We are a non-profit organization that was founded by two parents raising 3 amazing young men who happen to be Deaf. Our mission is to promote awareness of the Latino cultures to Deaf and Hard of Hearing children of all ages including their families and Deaf adults in order to maintain our cultures alive! We offer a free weekly family American Sign Language class in partnership with Parent Links and Deaf Education And Families Project in order to help families acquire a visual language that will help them share family traditions, stories and history, including the family gossip! We also offer workshops where we teach the importance of family unity and how to build and strengthen the relationship between Parents and their Deaf and Hard of Hearing children! Because by working together as a family anything is possible!!
