There are 17,000 deaf kids in state of California who do not know American Sign Language. Approximately only 800 of those deaf kids attend California School for the Deaf at Fremont and Riverside.
Without ASL, those deaf children will have difficulty acquiring language and personal growth without their native language.
DCARA’s family connections program is designed to connect those deaf children to the world of ASL, Deaf Community and Culture. In 2016, DCARA’s Family Connections program connected many of the deaf children of hearing parents successfully and we want to continue and grow the program with your help.
DCARA is also launching a program called Deaf Start up which will be a nationwide program providing assistance to all people who want to start up their own companies/businesses ranging from hi-tech to personal services.
With that, we will provide successful mentors in our industry to those people who need personal guidance in how to set up their own businesses. We'll also provide once per month get togethers / workshops, classes and 1 on 1 guidance during business hours.
We truly believe this will be an incredible effort to reduce the unemployment numbers in our deaf community.
Let’s help those 2 programs by HAVING FUN!
DCARA will be hosting its birthday party at Purple Orchid Resort in Livermore on April 2nd from 1-5 pm with plenty of small food, wine, silent auction and socializing. All of the revenue will go to DCARA in supporting programs like those 2.
Let’s party and see you at the party!
