How to Help
Use tab to navigate through the menu items.
CROCHET, KNITTING, WEAVING, NEEDLE FELTING- Participants in this lively group work on and complete blankets, scarves, teddy bears etc. You do not have to have prior knowledge of crochet, knitting or weaving to participate! Items are then donated to other local nonprofits. It is our way of giving back to the community.
ART- A program that allows our participants to explore and create using different types of media. Painting, sculpting, reclaimed material, paper-mache, are all favorites. Limited only by the imagination!
WELLNESS- This program is designed to educate and empower our participants to take charge of their well-being. Topics have included diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, eye disease, depression and chronic pain. Each discussion or topic is led by a guest speaker with knowledge on that particular topic or someone working in that field. We have visits from certified therapy dogs as well.
PEER SUPPORT GROUP- Adjusting to vision loss is a journey, and one that you do not have to navigate alone! Those who are blind, visually impaired and those who are experiencing deteriorating vision as well as their families are invited to participate. Discussions have included such topics as coping skills, emotional support, best practices, public perception and many others!
