Deaf Access Services

Who We Are

Deaf Access Services (DAS) f/k/a Deaf Adult Services, was established in 1983 by a group of committed volunteers interested in the welfare of the Deaf Community. DAS was set up as an independent not for profit organization and continues to be the only agency of its kind serving the eight counties of Western New York. DAS changed its name to Deaf Access Services in 2014 to expand their focus to not only adults, but children and families in Western New York.

Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and staffed by Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Hearing individuals, DAS affords a diverse, inclusive environment in which to provide and receive services.

What We Do

Deaf Access Services connects Western New York communities of Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Hearing people using American Sign Language in the pursuit of everyday access through Advocacy, Education, Employment, Interpreting Services and Deaf Refugee Services.
