Subject: Support Service Providers



I want to share some information with you.  Missouri has a service that
helps people who have vision and hearing loss to be more independent.  It's
called a Support Service Provider or SSP.  The SSP can help you go to the
grocery store, go to the doctor's office, go on a walk, run errands, etc.
You need to be able to make the decisions - the SSP provides you with visual
and environmental information to make informed choices.  


The SSP is paid by state funding, not you.  Want to learn more about the
program and if you are eligible?  There are some introduction calls
scheduled this spring.  Pick one that works for you.   You can join using a
Zoom link or over the telephone.  Here are the dates and times:  

Feb 10, 2021     9:00 - 10:30 am 

Mar 10, 2021     9:00 - 10:30 am

Apr 2, 2021       9:00 - 10:30 am

May 28, 2021    9:00 - 10:30 am


To participate, please call Christina at 660-491-0146 voice or email her at
modbssp at beyond-interpreting.com  


Many people spent several years advocating for these services.  Think you
might be interested, reach out to Christina.  Other states are jealous of
this service.  Take advantage of it.  Beth
