Deaf-Blind Access of the South is a non-profit organization whose mission is to organize a camp/retreat event every two years for the Deaf-Blind adults in Georgia and the surrounding area. This event provides a rare and invaluable experience for those with a dual-sensory loss to get together, share their skills and discuss their educational and technological needs. To learn more, please visit our new website: dbascamp.org.
Although the attendees pay the majority of the costs, we still need to raise money to cover additional funds to cover food and lodging expenses for the sixty SSPs who volunteer their time and expertise to make the camp possible. There are numerous additional expenses such as transportation, speaker fees, special equipment for the attendees, etc. We have registered on Grants.gov, but could use the skills of someone experienced in applying for grants (from the government or private corporations).
