Deaf Planet Soul serves and empowers the Deaf and Hard of Hearing through programming in childhood literacy, women’s self defense, job training, business development, social events and more.
Our long-term goal is to develop an all-inclusive community center in Chicago. This center will provide 60 jobs for the Deaf and will allow members of the community to grow in leadership and expertise. We envision a space run by directors and supervisors who are all Deaf, fluent users of American Sign Language. A place where we can nurture the growth of Deaf entrepreneurship, expanding the Deaf ecosystem while giving folks the opportunity to create their own businesses, art, music and more.
