Eye-Link North Dakota is excited to announce the addition of new board members Lisa Crosby, Amy Osvold and Laurie Westling. Amy and Laurie are both with North Dakota Vision Services/School for the Blind and Lisa comes to us as director of Lake Region Heritage Center and Lake Region Arts Center. Welcome Lisa, Amy and Laurie. We greatly appreciate their knowledge and enthusiasm for assisting blind and low vision North Dakotans and look forward to a wondrous 2024 for Eye-Link North Dakota.
The joy of receiving assistive equipment spreads to family members and caregivers! The daughter of a recent grant recipients expresses the critical need for hardware/software packages that have extended or expanded her mother’s remaining vision.
Dear Eye-Link Board,
I am writing to thank you for the use of the LyriQ text to speech reader for my mother. She loves it, and has given her so much freedom. She can now read mail, daily devotions, and other literature without help. Our vision counselor Gena helped us set up the machine, and it is now a permanent fixture on Mom’s side table.
We sincerely appreciate your generosity and compassion.
Putting assistive equipment into the hands of visually impaired people is Eye-Link’s daily mission, sharing the joy our recipients feel is our reward.
