The Utah Department of Workforce Services’ Division of Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired (DSBVI) hosted its annual open house March 3. This year, the event was held virtually through ZOOM. Staff demonstrated the many services available through DSBVI including classes for braille, career readiness, home management, fiber arts, orientation and mobility, technology and woodshop.
“In Utah, individuals who are blind or visually impaired benefit from many services that empower these Utahns to thrive,” says Steve Winn, Director of the Utah Division of Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired. “Thanks to many years of advocacy efforts and laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, there are a myriad of effective and practical resources available at no cost to the blind and visually impaired.”
