Support Service Providers (SSP) are for adults who are deafblind. This program encourages community integration, increases the level of independence, and supports the rights of deafblind persons to have unrestricted access to their environment.
The SSPs relay visual and environmental information and may serve as a guide, assist with reading, errands, recreational activities and transportation. The SSP may also share opportunities and resources available in their area.
iCanConnect provides equipment and training to people with significant combined hearing and vision loss so they can stay connected to friends and family. Sending an email or chatting on the phone can be difficult without access to the right equipment. iCC puts technology into the hands of these individuals to enhance their independence. Learn about the program’s income and disability guidelines at iCanConnect.org.
