RI Low Vision Support Groups

VISION (Visual Impairment Support, Information, Opportunities, and News) is an open small group meeting for anyone living with a visual impairment as well as family members, caregivers, and friends. Meetings are facilitated by the IN-SIGHT agency, and participants are encouraged to share their stories, ask questions, provide support, and learn from each other. The groups meet monthly in several locations throughout Rhode Island and are ideal for people who are new to living with a visual impairment.

For more information including a link to the current meeting schedule, please visit IN-SIGHT’s Support Groups web page.
