Support Groups

Our network of eight support groups bring together people who are living with vision loss to help them find ways to overcome the isolation, loneliness, and frustration that they may be feeling. The groups also create opportunities for people to learn from each other and form lasting friendships.

INSIGHT staff facilitate several local monthly support groups that often feature presentations from INSIGHT staff members and guest speakers. The groups also provide people in the same geographic area with the opportunity to come together and offer peer support to each other as. A current list of active community support groups are listed below. Please note that the community support groups do not meet in July and August.

To register for any of our groups please call Rick Andrade at (401) 941-3322 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
