Learn more technology safety tips. There is always a computer trail, but you can leave this site quickly. Womanspace is friendly and available to the deaf community. Deaf and hard of hearing individuals can text us 24/7 at 609-619-1888
Since 1977 Womanspace has served more than 312,245 adults and children
It is estimated that one in every 4 women is beaten and one in every 5 women is sexually assaulted in their lifetime. For the deaf and hard of hearing that ratio is even higher. Isolation and systems that can’t communicate or don’t understand the culture of the deaf communities make getting help even more difficult.
Womanspace has begun a Deaf Advocacy Project that will train Deaf volunteers to respond to victims immediately.
