From Isolation towards Deaf Community

White haired woman speaking about the needs of deaf+ people and why group homes are important.
I want to share with you the latest new outreach of Deaf ministry. We have formed a community committee of concerned Deaf community members, advocates parents of Deaf people with additional Special Needs to advocate for the establishment of Group homes in Delaware for Deaf people with additional disabilities. We have been meeting and collecting statewide info in statistics and stories and have now met with the head of the Division of Developmental Disability Services. They have no idea how many Deaf people they have in group homes or where they are located. they are all in different group homes with staff that does not know sign language. So they are totally isolated except for the ones who come to our camp where for 1 week in the entire year they have communication.

A Question of Faith movie poster, rated PG







When: December 21st 7 pm -?

What the movie (A Question of Faith) is about: Three families find themselves at a crossroads, questioning their faith and the God that guides their lives. As each family member deals with their issues, their worlds start to intertwine. This leads to a chain of events, which unknowingly brings the three families closer and closer together. Will the families give in to the loss, pain, and uncertainty that has shattered their lives, or will they find the tie that binds them all together through hope, trust, redemption, and goodwill?

I reached out to someone at Delaware School for the Deaf to help you out. Also, I can post your request on our website that you had accessed. If you are okay with that, there are two options for communication – 1. list your email in the post online or 2. have them contact me, and I can refer them to you. Either works.
