Sight-Loss Support Group of Central PA, Inc.
TURNING DARKNESS INTO LIGHT SINCE 1982!
ABOUT THE SLSG:

​​​
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?"


​​    OUR MISSION:
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.
