We Want To Hear From You!

     Community meetings give us a chance to inform you about the latest changes at the Department of Services for the Blind, and to discuss issues and challenges. We want to know about your experience with our services. What is working well in your community? What could we do better? What needs are not being met? We will use your comments to develop our state and strategic plans for the coming year.

     Whether you are a past, present, or potential consumer of the Department of Services for the Blind, a family member, a community service provider, a friend to someone who is blind, a member of a blind consumer organization, or an interested citizen, we want to hear from you. Please join us to talk to us in person at our upcoming Tacoma community meeting.
