Mission Statement

Providing the education, tools, and resources to those with hearing and visual sensory disabilities so that they may achieve independence through health, safety, and productivity.

Background Statement

The Orange County Deaf Advocacy Center was founded in 1998 by our late founder Richard Roehm to meet a gap in services to the Deaf community. In 2003 we added Deaf-blind services and in 2013 we sharpened our focus and defined the three sections of the sensory impaired community we would focus on to include those that are either deaf, blind, or autistic. We specialise in those with multiple impairments and those with communication disorders.

We serve the sensory impaired community in the areas of: education, employment, housing and more. We also offer training to help adults and children adapt to their impairments, as well as training to local businesses in being more disability friendly.

Impact Statement

Our top three accomplishments are

  1. We held educational outreach booths at the Pet Expo, Youth Expo, and Orange County Fair (where we received a blue ribbon). We educated thousands of people about deafness, blindness and autism.

  2. We have sold hundreds of disability specific products through our eBay store. Including many refurbished assistive technology devices that we are able to sell at a lower cost to our customers than other places. Making the needed technology within closer reach to those with lower income.

  3. We provided information and referrals to hundreds of people that call us, getting them the info they need to be able to live happy healthy lives.

Looking forward our top three goals are

  1. Hold educational outreach booths at the Pet Expo, Youth Expo, and Orange County Fair.

  2. Bring all our brochures up to date with simpler more easy to understand language and current information.

  3. We are looking forward to building our audience on social media so that we can more quickly and easily contact and connect with our stakeholders.

Needs Statement

  1. Three years of audited financial statements, these are needed by many places that we would like to apply at for grants. $18,000 ($6,000 for each year)

  2. We need to raise awareness and funds for the Richard Roehm Memorial Ranch. Currently Estimated at $5,000,000 with most of that being the expense of the land (25+ acres in or near Orange County).

  3. We need more volunteers and more committed volunteers. A subscribtion with would help us locate volunteers. $75 a year

  4. We need to find a couple of great board members to join our board and be really engaged.

  5. We need to grow our eBay store and carry more devices. $10,000 to import new stock of different assistive technology devices.
