100% complete

$5,000 Goal


Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, ThinkSelf's essential staff have been working both remotely and in the community providing support finding safety, navigating serious financial barriers, and achieving goals towards independence and self-empowerment.

Even as the pandemic appears to start winding down and we explore this new normal, our changing social climate and its overdue reckoning for justice and equity will resonate for years to come.  People in our communities continue to live in unhealthy, even dangerous, home environments with few apparent options for safe, affordable housing.  With unemployment and other benefits running out, many remain isolated in households with family members who know little or no sign language.

In times like this, which are difficult for many, any show of financial support will go a long way in allowing us to continue to provide a range of tangible resources such as:

  • Transportation and moving expenses for individuals and families escaping violence
  • Equipment loans for learning at home
  • Transportation for learners to attend school and work
  • Limited legal financial assistance for DVSA cases e.g., filing fees, interpreting, apartment deposits
  • Basic needs including food, winter clothing, and basic household items
  • Outreach and awareness efforts

Every little bit helps! Please consider supporting ThinkSelf's participants and learners while they navigate our lifetime's most dire health crisis.  Thank you!
