Crisis Text Line

A free, 24/7 text-messaging support line for people in crisis, announces the launch of a partnership with Gallaudet University and the Deaf community. Starting today, Deaf people will be able to text the word DEAF to 741741 and be connected with a Crisis Counselor. To read the full announcement about the new support line, click here.


Check out these captioned video projects, supported by the STEP Up Ohlone program,  put together by the Deaf Studies Division and American Sign Language club at Ohlone College. Students participating in this project had the opportunity to learn how to write the script, act and perform in front of the camera, how to film, and how to edit videos.
