Good Works Wednesday
A newsletter celebrating ASB progress, programs and people
At Associated Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired, we work every day to help individuals build skills and gain access to the information, experiences and resources they need to live the lives they wish to lead. We are an agency for anyone, anywhere on the vision loss continuum and offer education, training, community-based enrichment opportunities and referrals to help them achieve their individual goals.
TOMORROW: Women’s Peer Support Group
ASB participants can join us on Thursdays, starting tomorrow, from 10 – 11 a.m. for our Women’s Peer Support Group where we will discuss issues facing women who are blind or living with vision loss.
If this sounds like a group that might interest the participants you work with, they can contact Linda Gaffney at LGaffney@asb.org to join!
