We offer Adult Basic Education to deaf and hard of hearing Minnesotans who wish to expand their literacy skills, learn about workforce preparation, and establish long term career goals. ThinkSelf’s other primary program focuses on domestic violence and sexual assault advocacy providing support and creating opportunities for healing and self-empowerment to survivors.

Our Programs


Two people studying together.

For work, citizenship, college & life: It’s up to you! Our main goal is to ensure you have access to language and communication wherever you go – the workplace, home and your communities – whether that is through an ASL interpreter or communicating through texts, emails, or captions.

You deserve healthy love, a safe community and opportunities to heal and grow. We understand that violence and abuse has many impacts on a person’s life and work with you to explore and understand your options, plan for safety, find resources and achieve your goals.

Our Commitment to Accessibility

Our organization is committed to meeting the needs of all of our community members. We strive to create a welcoming environment and ensure equitable access to our programs, services and activities, as well as our print and digital media. 

We recognize that 1 in 4 people in the US have a disability or use a communication modality which may require accommodations – such as interpreters, assistive devices, or print materials with large font sizes – in order to benefit from resources and services. 

We consider it our privilege to provide accommodations because we understand that accessibility brings value to our programming and benefits everyone! We welcome your questions and comments on how to improve our materials and programs.
