The Bureau of Services for Blind Persons (BSBP) Hosts Open House at New Office

The Bureau of Services for Blind People (BSBP) welcomed visitors to its new location on March 23. Just down the road from its previous location, the new office is inside the Michigan Works building at 711 North Saginaw in downtown Flint.

BSBP employees from across the state gathered to explain their services. They help with job training along with independent living skills.

On Michigan’s Labor and Economic Opportunity Department website, BSBP is described as providing “training and services that empower people to achieve their individual goals. If you live in Michigan and you’re blind or visually impaired, the Bureau of Services for Blind Persons will work with you to define your goals and identify appropriate training and services.”

The BSBP also operates the state’s Bureau of Services for Blind Persons Training Center (BSBPTC), “a comprehensive rehabilitative center specializing in assisting youth and adults who are blind and have low vision. “

As a center of independent living, the Disability Network shares common goals with the group in providing services to support individuals’ goals for independent living and thriving in the community.
