Empowerment Weekends for Blind and Low-Vision Seniors

NFB of Virginia has announced the 2nd year of its Silver BELLS Program! They empower seniors 55 years and older with hands-on lessons to thought-provoking discussions, from classic confidence building to new friendships.

If you desire to be the most independent version of yourself, join the NFB for fundamental hands-on home management, technology, travel, and communications training. Learn to take charge of your own personal tasks. Just because you are low-vision or blind does not mean you need to rely on someone else.

Attend the kickoff meet and greet, via Zoom, on Saturday, January 7, from 1pm to 3pm. They will give you a sneak peek of what is in store at one of their three-weekend retreats scheduled in Virginia Beach, February 23 thru 26; in Northern Virginia, March 23 thru 26; and in Richmond, April 27 thru 30. These weekends are provided free of charge to Virginia residents thanks to a grant from the Virginia Board for the Blind and the National Federation of the Blind of Virginia.

Visit Bells for more information or contact the program coordinator, Sandy Halverson, at 703-400-6890 or
