Welcome to the Sight Loss Support Group.


We offer a supportive atmosphere where individuals can adjust to loss of vision, learn what resources are available for assistance and develop strategies to regain independence. Through shared experiences and a positive approach, the SLSG helps people answer the question "What do I do now?"



Change in the SLSG Organization

As of March 2015, we have moved out of our physical office space in State College and transitioned to a 'virtual office' configuration.  Our programs will continue without interruption; only our Contact info has changed.

Upcoming Talks ANd Meetings

2nd Thursdays: the new lunch group

Eat, Share, and Connect

We have resumed our popular monthly lunch meetings, now on the second Thursday of every month, from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm, at Mt. Nittany Residences (301 Rolling Ridge Dr, State College, 16801).  

The "new and improved" lunch bunch is a joint venture of the SLSG (Sight-Loss Support Group), the BBVS (Bureau of Blind and Visual Services), and the NCSS (North Central Sight Services). Open to the general public, the lunch bunch is a social, supportive, and informative afternoon. Representatives from each of the organizations will be present at each lunch, a new topic of interest will be presented each month, and a complementary lunch is provided.

Our next three meetings are June 8, July 13, and August 10. Lunch is provided. If you need help with transportation, please contact the office.
