Please join us as we fundraise and auction off some amazing pieces of work created by members of the deaf community. All proceeds will directly go to Deaf-REACH. About Deaf-REACH Since 1972, Deaf-REACH’s mission has been to maximize the self-sufficiency of deaf adults needing special services by providing Referral, Education & Employment, Advocacy, Counseling, and Housing. Deaf-REACH touches the lives of more than 200 deaf adults annually. Deaf-REACH’s goals go hand-in-hand with the mission—to provide deaf adults, some of whom are mentally ill or developmentally challenged, with the tools necessary to live as independently as possible within the community. Why imPACT? We believe it is not only the conversation, but also about the pact, that each of us make as we leave to continue the conversation, to think about, address these issues, and how we impact each other as a community. The venue, Smith Public Trust was mentioned as one of the most interesting bar openings of 2014 and is a host of community events regularly. Additionally the decor inside is done by a local street artist, which is one of the many reasons we chose this venue. Great food and drink selections. You can find out more about them at http://smithpublictrustdc.com/ Share this event on Facebook We hope you can make it!
