While Hospitality House employs hearing staff, we are committed to eliminate barriers to deaf survivors that chose to enter shelter. While deaf survivors have access to all the same services as a hearing survivor, the following are also available:
Closed Captioning on televisions
Visual door bell for your room
Visual Fire Alarms throughout the shelter
Bed Shaker Alarm Clock
Access to your preferred communication
ASL (through the use of an interpreter)
Also, with the help of the Georgia Center of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, we can help you gain access to telecommunication equipment for when you leave the shelter and set up permanent housing.
