Grand Chapter Special Project posted on 06-29-2016 09:31:00
The 2016-2017 Stars of Service special project is the Vermont Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (VABVI) Peer Assisted Learning & Support (PALS) group program for adults. This program allows our adult clients to cope with their vision loss surrounded by others who are facing similar challenges. Many are new to having a visual impairment, had to give up driving or hobbies due to their change in vision, and thus feel isolated and even depressed. PALS meetings enable our older clients to get together to discuss the social, emotional, and practical effects of vision loss. They discuss coping strategies, try out adaptive technology to assist with various tasks, and support one another in a social setting.PALS meetings are held twice per week in 11 different locations across the state. These meetings give our adult clients a chance to discuss the practical, social, and emotional effects of their vision loss. PALS group also gives these clients a chance to share coping strategies and socialize so they feel comfortable in their homes and communities again. They listen to guest speakers, many of whom are blind or visually impaired themselves. PALS group members also take part in activities in and around their community. These outings are important for the personal growth of our clients because they increase confidence and promote involvement in the community. Adults who participate in PALS groups become more comfortable traveling around their community and as a result a more likely to maintain their independence and sense of belonging.Worthy Grand Matron Sherrill Gould and Worthy Grand Patron James Chancey have a goal to raise $20,000 for this special project. We are off to a great start! As of June 25th we have raised $1,333.26 of which $106 is from apron sales.
