Hi, hi! I am Jane Whitney. I was born and raised in Oakland. I am so proud that I am from Oakland. My favorite hobbies are reading, gardening, and swimming – I swim and swim! What have I been doing at DeafHope? I am one of the co-founders of DeafHope in 2003. I have supported Deaf survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Now I am on the Board. What does community mean to me? Support each other.
