Staying Connected During Uncertain Times

Bosma Enterprises - 4/21/2020 3:10:04 PM

Our rehabilitation staff is available to take your calls, listen to your concerns and to be a resource for people who are blind. This blog features our many different resources to help you through these uncertain times.

Addressing the needs of the blind community has been one of Bosma Enterprises' top priorities during the coronavirus pandemic. We are dedicated to providing individuals experiencing vision loss with the highest level of rehabilitation services, despite not being able to meet with our clients in person. 

We continue to reopen our rehabilitation center in phases. If you would like to speak with someon about our rehab services, call 888.567.3422. We have also established many virtual options to assist people with vision loss during this time. Please see a full list of resources below.

We realize that many people are concerned about finances right now, but tax-deductible donations in any amount help us provide virtual training to our rehabilitation clients. With your help, we can continue providing life-changing rehabilitation services to clients living with vision loss. Click here to make a donation.
