Contributions
In Georgia, more than 800,000 people are classified as legally blind or visually disabled. Their numbers are increasing, and the majority of these individuals are senior citizens, many bound to their homes. The need has never been greater, and GaRRS's next steps will be determined by Georgians who seek to lift the barriers of isolation from the lives of our blind and print-disabled citizens. GaRRS is supported by government grants and by general donations from businesses and individuals. You can give, too. For more information call Rebecca Arayan, Interim Executive Director, 404-685-2822.
