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.


Yoga For All

From September 27 through Thanksgiving, participants can get their blood flowing with Yoga For All on Mondays from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. No previous experience is required, and all levels of experience are welcome. Participants will need to complete a waiver before attending classes. 
 
If any of the participants you work with are interested in signing up for this session, please contact our Director of Participant Engagement and Outreach, Lexi Jones, at ajones@asb.org or at 267-551-0561.


Movement with the PA Ballet 

Starting September 22, participants can join ASB on Wednesdays for Movement with the PA Ballet from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. These remote sessions will run for eight weeks, focusing on the physical technique and artistry of ballet and movement. Attendees will be encouraged to tell their stories through movement, promoting the idea that communication need not be verbal or visual. Participants will also learn about the physical health benefits that consistent movement has on the body and mind. 
 
If any of the participants you work with are interested in signing up for this session, please contact our Director of Participant Engagement and Outreach, Lexi Jones, at ajones@asb.org or at 267-551-0561.


ASB Family, Friends and Professionals Workshop

Starting the first week in October, on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., ASB is offering an eight-week series of workshops for friends, family and professionals interested in gaining more information about supporting those living with or working with individuals who are blind or experiencing vision loss! 

These workshops are also available to health care providers, employers, social service workers and anyone who would like to learn more about the social and emotional effects of blindness and vision loss.

If you or anyone you know is interested in participating, please email the Community Training Specialist, Lynn Heitz, at LHeitz@asb.org or leave a message at 215-627-0600 Extension 824.
