More About

The Deaf Hotline

The National Deaf Domestic Violence Hotline provides 24/7 support for Deaf callers nationwide, advocacy and information regarding domestic violence and sexual assault. ADWAS, in Seattle, Washington, partners with the National Domestic Violence Hotline(NDVH), in Austin, Texas, to provide this service in American Sign Language (ASL) for Deaf callers nationwide.

Advocates at the Deaf Hotline can be reached at any time through videophone (VP) or email.

Our Deaf advocates receive extensive training in domestic violence/sexual assault awareness. With this experience, Deaf advocates are able to provide culturally-sensitive crisis intervention, education, information and referrals for Deaf callers.

ADWAS & TDH advocates offer many ways to support callers as we can:
listen and provide emotional support
provide information and referrals
do domestic violence and sexual assault education
brainstorm with callers ways to keep safe
develop safety plans
Advocates can also work with Deaf and hearing friends and family members of Deaf survivors. Helpers can call us to learn more about intervention strategies and how to support survivors.

ADWAS also gives hearing domestic violence and sexual assault programs and shelters cultural training, support, education and technical assistance to improve their accessibility for Deaf survivors. For shelters and programs that want training or information on working with Deaf survivors, they can contact the hotline.

Deaf advocates additionally have outreach campaigns to spread awareness and education about this hotline as well as information regarding domestic violence and sexual assault within the Deaf community.
