SUPPORT GROUPS

Support groups for those with vision loss are available in Mobile , Baldwin and Montgomery in Alabama and in Gulfport in Mississippi. We encourage anyone with vision loss to attend a  local support group. Talking with others who have similar problems will provide not only emotional support but also much information about practical solutions to everyday problems and available resources.
