ADWAS believes that violence is a learned behavior and envisions a world where violence is not tolerated.
This ADWAS service model has been replicated in 42 deaf communities across the United States.
Until 1998, ADWAS was the only domestic violence and sexual assault organization for Deaf and Deaf-Blind victims in the United States.
Since its founding, ADWAS staff and volunteers have provided services to more than 900 Deaf and Deaf-Blind victims and community education and training to professionals to over 21,000 people.
The property incorporates sustainable building practices that will help ADWAS save money on energy costs including maximizing the use of natural daylight and using ultra-efficient insulation.
