Oasis: Orland Area Sight Impaired Support is one of three support groups provided by the nonprofit Christian organization OASIS for the Visually Impaired. At these support group sessions, people come to discuss issues, problems, and concerns in dealing and coping with their visual impairment situation. OASIS also conducts rehabilitation workshops, shares vision-related resources, and provides one-on-one peer and inspirational support. OASIS central belief is “we live by Faith and not by sight (II Corinthians 5:7)." We offer three different support sessions. The first, OASIS VisAbles, meets the first Friday of each month from 6:30-8:30 p.m. This group offers support for career-aged adults who are visible in the community as employees, volunteers, or active parents. The second, OASIS First Steps, meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month from 12:30-2:30 p.m. This group provides support and rehabilitation to those individuals who are newly visually impaired and have not received any rehabilitation. The third, OASIS Orland VIPs, meets on the first and third Thursdays of each month from 12:30-2:30pm. This group provides peer support to those individuals who have been visually impaired for a number of years. Check out our NEW website at http://www.oasisvision.org/
