Jordan, a deaf tenant: Jordan received a notice from the manager about setting up a walkthrough for apartment maintenance. She didn’t understand the purpose. With advocate’s guidance, they reached out the manager for clarification. The advocate educated the manager to request for an ASL interpreter and eplained the steps to Jordan to prepare for the walkthrough. Both manager and Jordan were able to meet together with an interpreter for the walkthrough.
Ben, a deaf senior citizen: Ben wanted to find a part-time job during his retirement, but he never used technology for any part of job application process. GLAD-EDD worked with him to navigate through online job applications and use e-mail as a mode of communication. Now, he has a part-time job and is more confident in using technology.
