Bainbridge Island Visually Impaired Persons Support Group
Our organization provides education, social support, and resources that improve independence and maintain quality of life for blind and low-vision persons. For example, “How- To” information on minimizing household hazards, simplifying food preparation, improving reading skills, adapting to digital devices, and traveling techniques is offered to all who have vision problems. We also serve as an advocate for the inclusion of visually impaired persons in the broader activities of the community by emphasizing their problems, needs and capabilities. Regular meetings by Zoom or in-person afford opportunities for information exchange and network development among members. Support through One Call For All enables the organization to extend community outreach, strengthen educational programs, and acquire equipment that is used for demonstration and training, thereby improving the capacity of visually impaired persons to function more effectively in their daily environment.
