They need to tell the story of what happened. These are the people we should be listening to. Please, speak up for yourselves. You cannot expect other people to do the work and “talking” for you. You can empower yourselves to make yourself heard by the City of Houston and Houston Police Department. Everyone will be listening and will back you up. You are the true voice.

For those of you who would like a glimpse into what DARS is all about. DARS is not just all about giving you hearing aids, paying for your school, or placing you with jobs. DARS is actually a spectrum of services provided to people of all disabilities funded by the state and federal government. DARS is not limited to the deaf and hard of hearing only like most may assume.
