The Disaster Case Management program at Brooklyn Center for Independence of the Disabled (BCID) is reaching out to deaf survivors of Superstorm Sandy. Starting Friday, November 7, 2014 on the first and third Fridays of the month, from 11am to 1pm, the program will have an American Sign Language Interpreter available to work with deaf individuals who still have unmet needs as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
