Support Group

Meets on the second Tuesday of each month at noon.

Join us to share your experiences, connect with others on the vision journey, and learn about ways to maintain your mental and physical health and well-being. GDABVI's adult support group is staffed by the Agency's Community Health Worker who serves as a liaison to assist in navigating additional needs.

Meetings currently take place virtually to accommodate  participation from individuals throughout our seven-county service area. Plans for in-person meetings are in the works and those meetings will occur as health and safety protocols permit. The group is inclusive, addresses a variety of topics related to visual impairment, and welcomes individuals 18 and over at all stages of the vision loss journey.

Next meeting: Tuesday, October 11, 2022, at noon.

Sounds like fun?
