Sierra Services for the Blind needs community’s help now

As a clint of Sierra Services for the Blind, my heart is heavy with the thought of the organization closing its doors due to lack of funding. I cannot begin to tell you the many ways I have been helped since I became legally blind about 15 months ago.

Transportation is provided by one of the staff so I can attend support group sessions. Because of that I have acquired coping skills that lessen my frustration, keep me independent, and give me a better quality of life.

It is hard for me to believe that a community as giving and as caring as this one will allow SSFTB to close operations on Jan. 31. It will be a terrible loss to the community and many clients will have no other recourse to necessary services.

I urge the business community that we all patronize and support to open up their hearts and help us through this difficult period until we get back on our feet and find permanent sources of funding.
