Sight-Loss Support Group of Central PA, Inc.
TURNING DARKNESS INTO LIGHT SINCE 1982!
WHO WE ARE...
The Sight-Loss Support Group of Central PA, Inc. was founded in 1982 by individuals who personally understand that sight loss can be a challenging and frightening experience if you don't have the best resources and support. The SLSG is a non-profit, self help organization made up of people who are personally coping with sight loss or who have a desire to help those with sight loss.
WHAT WE DO...
Our goal is to offer a supportive atmosphere where individuals can adjust to loss of sight,
learn what resources are available for assistance, and develop strategies to regain
independence. Through shared experiences and a positive approach, the Sight-Loss
Support Group helps people to answer the question, "What do I do now?"
The mission of the Sight-Loss Support Group of Central PA, Inc. is to help people overcome the emotional and physical challenges of varying degrees of sight-loss in order to live independently.

Bitingly relevant and sprinkled with sass, Tony Award best-musical nominee BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL, inspired by the Bring it On film, takes you on a high-flying journey through friendship, forgiveness, and determination.

Children of Eden: April 13, 2 pm, State College High School
A two-act musical play freely based on the story of Genesis, CHILDREN OF EDEN is a frank, heartfelt and often humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parents and children. Adam, Eve, Noah and the "Father" who created them deal with the headstrong, cataclysmic actions of their respective children. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet but inspiring message: that "the hardest part of love... is letting go."

On Tuesday, May 6th at 10:00 am come "tiptoe through the tulips" as we tour the Arboretum at Penn State.
