A team to help the CAREER AND RECOVERY RESOURCES INC. Annual Campaign to reduce literacy in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community!
The Dream Team was formulatated to help the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community over come barriers to employment. You can contribute anytime between now and the giving deadline of June 30th.
Career and Recovery Resources Inc.,(CRR) is the only program of it's kind in Houston. We provide adult basic literacy, computer, and life skills training, citizenship training, employment services, interpret job interviews and job coaching offered in American Sign Language.
CRR's Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services (DHHS) was founded in 1992 and is unique in the combination of services provided. According to the Texas Workforce there are 60,000 unemployed people in Harris County who are deaf and hard of hearing. The economic outlook for most deaf and severely hearing-impaired adults can be bleak.
Most deaf and hard of hearing clients come to our agency with only 2nd - 3rd grade reading ability. In many cases the human suffering involved in being isolated from both the spoken and written words of the world around them causes disproportionate dysfunctional behavior including crime and addction. To prepare our DHHS clients for the job market, we must first impart skills in math, reading, and writing to enhance their abilities to secure employment and/or enroll in college or vocational training.
My Team goal is to make a difference in the lives of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing through financial support.
