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.
New Education & Training Programs
We are excited to announce our virtual program schedule for the second quarter of 2021. While operating remotely, we are thankful our virtual platform has enabled us to continue our education programs, establish creative enrichment opportunities, and also continue our social and support groups.
The upcoming April – June 2021 schedule is available on the ASB website!
If any of the participants you work with are interested in signing up for these programs or would like to learn more about getting involved with ASB, please contact our Participant Navigator, Lexi Jones at email@example.com.
