Press Release

The Patrick Family Foundation has awarded a $10,000 grant to support the Association  for the Blind and Visually Impaired South Carolina’s (ABVI) new Low Vision Occupational Therapy  program. Through the Low Vision Occupational Therapy program, ABVI provides comprehensive  rehabilitation and educational training to adults with visual disabilities to help them develop skills and  techniques to capitalize on their remaining vision, maximize their independence and reduce the impact  of their disability. 

ABVI’s occupational therapy program empowers individuals to participate in daily activities and manage  their health conditions independently. In some cases, this program allows individuals to join the  workforce or, when necessary, age safely in place. This type of intervention is extremely client-centered  as the training is determined by the client’s skill level, visual disability, priorities and needs.

“We greatly appreciate the continued support from The Patrick Family Foundation as they continue to  help sustain ABVI’s mission to enrich the quality of life of the blind and visually impaired. Without  grantors like The Patrick Family Foundation, ABVI would not be able to provide free, specialized vision  rehabilitation services each year to a vastly underserved segment of our community” said Anne Reid,  Chief Development Officer for ABVI. “With the support of our closest stakeholders and community  partners like The Patrick Family Foundation, ABVI can continue to provide adults who are blind or  visually impaired with the critical skills they need to live, learn and earn with vision loss.”
