“She told me that I was a KODA, and that was all I needed to hear. I had a name for my ‘in between’. I had an identity. I was born to a Deaf couple, and my ears could hear–I was born again at the age of 15-‘KODA’ That’s who I am”. -Vanessa M., Camp Counselor
Since its founding in 2005, KODAWest, a non-profit, 501 (c) 3 organization, has served thousands of families regionally and nationally by providing an annual camp for over 100 KODA (Kids of Deaf Adults)campers, with a staff of 35 CODAs (Child of Deaf Adults), as well as year-round events for families. To be a part of this award-winning organization and carry on its mission to serve hearing children with parent/s who are deaf, the gift of your donation will go a long way in ensuring that KODAWest continues to provide a place for these KODAs.
The short film got selected for Lavender Carpet Film Festival!
What’s Lavender Carpet Film Festival?
DeafHope is excited to launch a new idea for our annual Glimmer of Hope event which will take place on February 22, 2014. We are going Hollywood in the form of a film festival! The theme is “Lavender Carpet Film Festival 2014: Lights, Camera, Activism!” featuring a series of community-based Public Service Announcements (PSA). Join us for delicious appetizers served throughout the evening, good friends and inspiring conversation about how we can change our community.
DeafHope is inviting filmmakers across the nation and around the world to submit short feature films, documentaries, film shorts, animation, and experimental works. Accepted films produced by Domestic Violence/Sexual Violence agencies and community allies will be eligible for category-specific Audience’s Choice Awards.
