About The Deaf Hotline

Formed by a partnership between Abused Deaf Women’s Advocacy Services and the National Domestic Violence Hotline, the National Deaf Hotline of ADWAS has been serving survivors both locally in WA and nationally since 2003. In 2017, The Deaf Hotline went 24/7 and has since then produced educational materials and provided trainings.

Deaf Hotline Services

Accessibility, confidentiality and integrity are of great importance to our services. Our advocacy is survivor-centric and we recognize that the self-determined liberation of survivors is tied to the liberation of all people. If you have questions about relationships, anti-violence, or need accessible resources, reach out to us.


Deaf survivors in the US face accessibility barriers to domestic violence services. We aspire to change that.

By prioritizing an anti-oppression philosophy, we strive to create an inclusive and equitable society that serves everyone, regardless of their background or identity. We believe that this is essential to achieving our goal of a more accessible and safer world for all.
