Review for Low Vision Resource Center, San Antonio, TX, USA
The Low Vision Resource Center (LVRC) is a wonderful organization that truly cares about its clients. I came across the LVRC when my daughter was looking for volunteer opportunities for school. My daughter and I volunteered for the LVRC together one time, and later I started to volunteer for them on my own.
The people at the LVRC are very caring and welcoming. Since that first opportunity, I have been a LVRC representative at several local health fairs in San Antonio. The LVRC, along with Owl Radio, provide many needed resources for visually impaired clients in and around Bexar county and its surrounding areas.
By becoming involved with the LVRC, I have learned so many things about the life of a visually impaired person. Services, such as Owl Radio, help clients maintain a connection to the community. Owl Radio is a service that reads the San Antonio Express News, a local newspaper, on the radio from my top to bottom everyday. Wow, what a service! In addition, they also read many other publications on the air. If you tune into Owl Radio, you will find something on 24/7, 365 days out of the year.
Besides Owl Radio, the LVRC also sponsors the Low Vision Club. Club members can participate in several planned monthly activities designed especially for the visually impaired person. Other services that the LVRC provides are a yearly publication of the LVRC Resource Guide; and the availability of small group counseling sessions for clients.
As you can see, the Low Vision Resource Center is a greatly needed resource for the community. I do not hesitate to recommend them whenever the opportunity arises. I hope you check out the LVRC yourself. I guarantee you will be very impressed with the services they offer.
