OASIS support groups offer peer support for those adults who live with blindness or low vision.

We welcome any individual who is either new to vision loss or has experienced loss of vision for a number of years. Members are encouraged to RSVP by phone or email prior to monthly meetings. Spouses or friends are always allowed to accompany the member to OASIS meetings for added emotional or physical support.

Meetings feature guest speakers or eye care professionals who address education and various topics of interest. Members socialize, share stories and ideas within their own comfort level. Lunch or light refreshments are served. OASIS support groups meet monthly.

Additionally, OASIS celebrates several holidays each year with a special social gathering for members, and their spouse, family member, or friend, that includes refreshments or a meal and group activities. These events are held during the support group date and time.

Become A Volunteer

We have a team of volunteer drivers that transport many members to the monthly meetings. Please call 779-324-2025 if a ride is needed and to check availability. We cannot guarantee transportation will be available in all areas or to every meeting.

If you are interested in helping at our events or being a volunteer driver, please click here. OASIS cannot succeed without our dedicated volunteers.
