D.E.A.F. (Deaf Entertainment Access Foundation) is excited to join the HLAA Walk4Hearing event on Saturday, May 11th!
D.E.A.F is a non-profit organization committed to providing Open Caption (OC) equal accessibility at movie theaters. Open Captions benefit many individuals with hearing loss. We are focusing our efforts with improving literacy among children, supporting the senior/aging population, providing services for the immigrant population, supporting late deafened individuals including military veterans.
D.E.A.F. celebrated its’ 6th year anniversary this past January 2019 with just two movie theater locations back in 2013. Today the organization has partnerships with movie theater chains in over 25 locations throughout NYC, Westchester and Long Island! Recently this past March 2019, D.E.A.F. successfully assisted organizations with setting up OC movies in southern Florida including Jensen Beach, Boca Raton and Miami.
All money that D.E.A.F. raises during this HLAA Walk4Hearing will go to support low cost movie theater tickets with school programs for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students who would otherwise not have an opportunity to experience the benefit of OC movies and literacy improvement.
Your donations and support for this wonderful event hosted by HLAA Walk4Hearing will allow the organization to continue working with the community at large. Please consider joining the D.E.A.F. Walk4Hearing team for a fun filled day on this beautiful walk trail. If you are unable to join us on May 11th, please consider a donation to support the D.E.A.F. school kids OC movie theater program.
