Greater Detroit Agency for the Blind and Visually Impaired

16625 Grand River Avenue
Detroit, MI 48227


“Greater Detroit Agency for the Blind & Visually Impaired was there for me at perhaps the most difficult time of my life. When I was 53 years old I suddenly lost most of my vision. It was devastating. I had been working full time in the medical field and living on my own. GDABVI was there from the beginning of my new journey and helped me to get back to the business of life. What I thought I could never do again – including basic daily living skills – I am doing effortlessly. No doubt it has not been easy but with learning new adaptive techniques, how to use a long cane for mobility and blindness adjustment skills, I am getting my independence back! I hope to one day help others who lose their vision – the way I was helped! Thank you,”

Thank you,
