Our family member recently lost 100% of his vision and was looking for activities and support in addition to a community of understanding peers. Within months of connecting with The Whole Person, we were involved in Bike Rides, Support Groups, Yoga, Sports, Parades, Technology Guidance, and Game Nights. We love this new family that understands our needs and struggles!
