Vision Forward Association receives $10,000 grant from The Catholic Community Foundation to support individuals learning to adapt to various stages of vision loss
“The Catholic Community Foundation’s support of our Vision Rehabilitation Therapy Programs helps ensure that people who are blind or visually impaired can access critical therapy services that help them adapt to their vision loss and maintain their independence,” says Vision Forward’s executive director Terri Davis.
Vision Forward’s Vision Rehabilitation Therapy Programs include low vision, music, occupational, physical and speech-language therapy for young children, youth and adults of all ages who have varying degrees of vision loss. Each therapy has a specific purpose, and the therapies are often used together for maximum effectiveness in helping individuals manage everyday life with vision loss.
The Catholic Community Foundation’s generosity in supporting Vision Rehabilitation Therapy Programs helps ensure that individuals of all ages and at all stages of vision loss have every opportunity to be vital, contributing members of our community.
