ThinkSelf is a Minnesota-based 501c3 nonprofit serving Deaf, DeafBlind, DeafDisabled and hard of hearing individuals from a wide range of backgrounds. 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.

Find Safety

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.

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.
