    My name is Allan Williams, I am an advocate at a nonprofit agency called Abused Deaf Women’s Advocacy Services. We serve Deaf and Deaf Blind survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and harassment by transforming their lives while striving to change beliefs and behaviors that foster and perpetuate violence as a whole. We provide comprehensive services to individuals and families, community education, and advocacy on system and policy issues.

    As we work closely with individuals that come from traumatizing backgrounds, promote self-care for everyone, and strive to make our office feel comfortable and at home for our clients and staff- we are seeking for plants and highly believe they are what makes spaces feel safe, welcoming, comfortable and reduce stress. We are kindly asking for any donations. Plants have so many benefits and would love to accept any you have to offer for our office to improve the quality of our work environment!

    Please do not hesitate to decline this request. But also I ask that you take in considerations of giving back to our underserved community and agency that strives to improve lives of those that struggle at home and in life.

    Thank you for your time and considerations. I hope to hear from you in the near future and would love to partner with you of any kind. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about our agency, work, or me individually I am more than happy to share information with you.
