P.E.A.C.H. Collaboration

Decatur, Georgia

The P.E.A.C.H Collaboration (Partnership for Equality and Comprehensive Help for Deaf Domestic Violence Survivors) is a partnership between the Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence (GCADV), the Georgia Council for the Hearing Impaired (GACHI), and Tools for Life.  GCADV is a statewide service center for people who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing (HOH), and deaf-blind.  Tools for Life, Georgia’s Assistive Technology Act program is dedicated to increasing access to assistive technology devices for Georgians of all ages and disabilities.  The P.E.A.C.H. Collaboration strives to create sustainable, systemic change within the organizations involved that will result in exceptional services for domestic violence survivors who are Deaf and HOH.

Our Unique Contribution

The P.E.A.C.H. Collaboration works to facilitate the provision of equitable access to safe, comprehensive and responsive person-centered services for Deaf, HOH, deaf-blind, and late deafened individuals who have experienced domestic violence.  The collaboration’s work has focused on expanding the capacity of disability, assistive technology, and domestic violence organizations.
