We are a diverse group of Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing people with a fully signing environment working towards a better life for the Deaf, DeafBlind, hard of hearing and late-deafened (DDBHHLD) people in the Bay Area. We're looking for talented, forward-thinking and energetic individuals to join our team and have fun while working!


You are a person who can sign and has a tremendous amount of compassion for the DDBHHLD community. You are someone who LOVES to solve social issues which our community faces. You will get to work with a dynamic Executive Director with many tons of ideas and dreams for the future tomorrow. You get to work with other similar minded people with compassion and a desire to solve problems.


We believe every DDBHHLD person should have equal access to everything. We break down the barriers that are standing between the DDBHHLD person and what would make their life better. We are constantly coming up with ideas on how to make DCARA more current with today's climate. We value all staff members' input. We value enthusiasm, energy and the desire to move up through the ranks.
