Transforming the lives of individuals of all ages with vision loss
News & Views March 2018
 

I'd say we've had our share of  unsettling weather patterns this month! Time to think thoughts of spring. This month marks the one year anniversary of our name change to Future In Sight. We continue on our quest to strengthen our education programs, occupational therapy services, assistive technology training, and recreational activities for youth and seniors.

Whether  you have lived with a visual impairment most of your life or are just receiving  a diagnosis of permanent  vision loss, Future In Sight's programs and services can make a significant  difference in your day-to-day life. The hallmark of our rehabilitation programs is the one-on-one training we provide. We go where our help is needed the most - home, work, school or community. Services are tailored to the individuals unique needs. Connecting with us is easy.
