Social & Emotional Support

Vision loss can be isolating. We bring people together through social activities, support groups, and mentorships.

As of March 23, 2020, these services are temporarily unavailable as a proactive measure against the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Read details and updates here.

Activities

All Community Center events and activities are cancelled until further notice. Details here.

Mentorships pair longtime clients with people new to the vision loss journey for practical and emotional support. Call us at (612) 871-2222 to learn more and find a mentor match.
