Relaying Self-Sufficiency




Your contribution to the Florida Support Service Program (FSSP) is tax-deductible and will allow Florida Deaf-Blind Association (FDBA) to provide Support Service Providers (SSPs) for Deaf-Blind Floridians.

Helen Keller said 'character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved'; emphasizing FDBA's mission to reduce isolation and to empower Deaf-Blind Floridian with a better quality of life.

SSPs and Deaf-Blind Floridians will be matched according to their location (county) and their need; to promote self-sufficiency. The SSP can sight-guide, assist in communication needs (voice/sign), relay visual information and provide transportation for the Deaf-Blind Floridian to go shopping, for a community activity to help reduce isolation; plus, in school and on the job. These SSPs will be the 'eyes' and 'ears' of the Deaf-Blind Floridians.

Thank you for your interest and please feel free to contact FSSP Coordinator for more information.
