Asheville Deaf/Blind Opportunities

Hello All!

   We have some great opportunity for anyone interested in working with the Deaf-Blind Community!


One of the attachments is for the Support Service Provider training- two opportunities for training. (there are no CEU’s offered for this training as you are not required to be an interpreter to be an SSP)


The other attachment is for a chance to use those skills and volunteer at the Deaf-Blind ThanksMas Luncheon.


If you have more questions about either event, please contact   Laura Herman: or 828-475-1886 VP
