Ability Central is an Oakland-based nonprofit working within the Deaf and disabled community to expand access to communication and information.
We’re on a mission to transform the field of communications and information access, working collaboratively as an educator, convener, and resource for organizations and individuals who are Deaf, disabled, and neurodiverse.
We also offer grants and technical support to other nonprofits working to help these communities, and provide online information and resources for people with questions about disabilities and communication access.
