Donate to Deaf Community Center Facelift!
Deaf Community Center (DCC) opened its doors in December 4th, 1993. For nearly 20 years DCC hosted various events to provide programs and services that meet the needs of DCARA clients, customers, and community members. Deaf organizations used DCC for meetings, workshops, and social gatherings. Deaf Community Center is considered to be heart of the deaf community.
Over time, the Deaf Community Center is starting to show wear and tear. We are currently working on giving this facility a facelift. We would like to ask for donations to cover the costs of renovations such as kitchen area with better lighting, upgrade of the backyard, new fence, wheelchair access ramp to the main stage, electronic messages on the marquee sign outside, and additional of security cameras.
We sincerely need your help with the expense of DCC renovation. Please consider making a donation!
