Review for Wisconsin Council of the Blind & Visually Impaired Inc, Madison, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization has improved my life in so many ways--they are like the gift that keeps on giving. My first experience with the organization was through the support group for people who have RP. I had never interacted with people who are blind or visually impaired before, and just the opportunity to talk casually with others have improved my life so much. The individuals who lead the group have the best character and make us laugh even when we are talking about serious subjects.

This organization also provided me with the opportunity to start a storytelling group for people who are blind or visually impaired. As soon as I expressed interest, they were nothing but helpful, excited, and encouraging. They helped me make contacts throughout Wisconsin to recruit participants, and they have gone out of their way to help me in any way they can. I couldn't ask for more!

Finally, this organization provided me with a scholarship for students who are blind or visually impaired. This is such a great way to help students who might have more expenses or challenges than other students, and I was very appreciative of the help.

For anyone who is looking for a way to connect with other who are blind or visually impaired, I would highly recommend getting involved with this organization. They do a wonderful job of creating a sense of community for individuals and their families. I always feel at home in this organization.
