Mission Statement

For people with deafblindness, and those who support them, to build connections with the community, promote self-respect, and improve communication and daily living skills, while creating moments of joy.

Description

Touch Base is the dream of parents of two deafblind young adults in Houston, TX. They decided to create a specialized post-school resource with the advice and help of the experienced staff at Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, as well as other qualified professionals.

Touch Base members with deafblindness work one-on-one with his or her intervener, as well as the Program Coordinator, up to 6 hours daily, Monday - Friday. At the center and in the community, members will practice and participate in routines, life skills, and fun activities, such as gardening, candle-making, community outings, exercise routines, dancing, animal therapy, baking, holiday celebrations, card-making, pottery and so much more!
