KyADAPT


KyADAPT is the only organization in the state that exists solely to serve deaf and hard of hearing adults with other disabilities. We focus on providing learning experiences to assist our clients to live safely and as independently as possible. We also assist clients to obtain needed services from other agencies and to achieve personal goals. With the Housing Authority of Danville, we operate a small residential program in Danville. We are a Heart of Kentucky United Way Community Partner.

KyADAPT changes lives by giving those we serve a priceless gift--the gift of increased independence and self-sufficiency! Because of the assistance we provide, we have clients who are successfully living in their own apartments, clients who are preparing to do this, and other clients who are living more independently in other types of residences. We offer independent living classes and community learning experiences designed to teach and enhance clients' independent living skills, and volunteer work opportunities so that they can give something back to the communities in which they live. We sponsor monthly group activities for our clients and others like them to provide them with opportunities for social skills and language development and to dispel the loneliness and isolation which persons with disabilities too often experience. With the help of the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, we assist our clients who want to work to seek, obtain and maintain employment. Our staff and volunteers communicate with our clients in their preferred language (American Sign Language) so that we can fully understand--and help clients achieve--services they need and personal goals they set. We provide clients with ASL interpreters as needed and offer community sign language classes to groups interested in learning ASL.
KyADAPT needs volunteers for the following tasks:
(1) driving our clients to classes and other learning experiences, group activities, volunteer work assignments, health care appointments, grocery stores, etc.
