Our primary mission is to support and empower the Deaf Community through a variety of programs and services. Planned activities include Deaf exhibition/cultural event, and ad hoc advocacy efforts. Future activities may include a Deaf Community Center, job coaching, and educational workshops. ProjectDEAF is a newly formed organization based in the state of Florida, but our board and volunteers have many years of experience working in and for the Deaf Community.
Currently, our activity is focused on hosting “It’s A Deaf Thing” which will be a capstone event for September’s Deaf Awareness Month. It will provide the unique opportunity for Florida’s estimated 200,000 Deaf to gather and celebrate their culture and share their perspectives and increase awareness of Deaf issues. The inaugural event, scheduled for Saturday, September 30 at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland, FL features products and services. Additionally, an art and craft show showcasing products by and for the Deaf Community runs the full day. A talent show at 6:00 PM is the grand finale to a full day celebrating the Deaf Community.
