The Center for American Sign Language (ASL) prepares students for personal or professional related skills to be able to understand and communicate with the Deaf Community in a Christ-centered faith-based setting.
I graduated and got an amazing job with a non-profit. My job is to work with survivors of Domestic Violence. Last week, I had a client reach out who was deaf, and instantly I remembered everything you taught me. I now am supporting this survivor and I am so grateful that I took even just one ASL class. It has made communication easier and it allows for that gap to be filled. I wanted to email you to just say thank you! I never knew the impact of a simple class!

I met another deaf couple at Top Golf, and for the cancer camp I help out with I’m going to be signing to deaf patients! I couldn’t thank you enough for all you’ve taught me!

I had a group of deaf people come into my restaurant today and they brought an interpreter to order and I was able to sign with them and communicate the whole time and it was a ton of fun and they were so excited I could sign to and with them. I’ve been telling everyone about it all day…
