BENEFITING: Orange County Deaf Advocacy Center
ORGANIZER: Orange County Deaf Advocacy Center
I have been with OCDAC for 15 years, this project is one of the biggest we've ever taken on. Please help us move forward and continue to be able to provide our services to those who need it the most. We do a lot of good with very few resources, but right now we need YOUR help to succeed. We currently do not have the equpment we need nor do we have the funds to buy it. We are on raw land, that means there is NOTHING there unless we put it there! We are going to be on the land in Lancaster until we find land in Orange County, while we do this we are still supporting opperations serving our clients. A blind boy that needs help with his IEP to get services needed to learn in class, a Deaf man being evicted from his home, an Autistic girl in need of a service dog. These are all real people we are actively helping! Please donate and then open your contact list and CALL others to donate. We need you, please help!

We are raising money for the Richard Roehm Memorial Ranch. Named after our late founder, RRMR will be a place that provides much needed housing and training facilities for the deaf, blind and autistic. The funds raised here will go directly to the project.
