Our Story

accesSOS is a tech nonprofit organization on a mission to make emergency help accessible. Our vision is communication access for all.
Our founder

Meet Gabriella Wong , the CEO and founder of accesSOS.

“Both of my parents are deaf, so we communicate using American Sign Language. When my father got into a car accident, he texted me to call 911 for him. What if he wasn’t able to reach me? This nightmare became a reality when my father had a gallbladder rupture. He was all alone and I didn’t see his texts for help in time. During one of the most vulnerable, desperate moments of his life, he couldn’t contact 911 to get help. He almost died because of this inequity. These personal experiences motivate me to keep doing the hard work of fixing this problem.”
