Deaf Blind Services
Deaf Blind Living Well Services is a new program, formed in partnership with the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation Bureau of Blindness and Visual Services, Pennsylvania Statewide Independent Living Council, and Pennsylvania Office for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. The Center for Independent Living of Central Pennsylvania is the manager of this program.

This program will include trainings for Support Service Providers (SSP) to assist individuals who are deaf-blind to achieve greater independence and quality of life in their communities. As a consumer-driven program, individuals will select and schedule their own SSPs for up to 14 hours of service each month. Individuals interested in becoming an SSP may apply online.
