Thursday, October 15, 2009

TERRE HAUTE -- The Wabash Independent Living and Learning Center, Inc. (The WILL Center) provides free assistance to persons 55 and older who are blind and/or visually impaired.

The WILL Center has assisted more than 370 visually impaired seniors -- free of charge -- to maintain their independence.

The WILL Center has just expanded its Chapter Two Program to encompass the counties of Vigo, Parke, Putnam, Clay, Vermillion, Sullivan, Greene, Knox, Daviess, Martin, Gibson and Pike. In addition to providing assistance to visually impaired persons, The WILL Center offers programs and services designed to assist consumers in getting the skills, knowledge and support they need to function at their highest level of independence and to advocate for themselves.

The WILL Center provides services such as low vision support groups, orientation and mobility training, training for service agencies, assistive products, Braille printing and resource referral.
