Rhonda Greene speaks to Columbus Lions

Published 4:14 pm Tuesday, August 8, 2017

Rhonda Greene, NC DHHS, Div. of Services for the Blind, was the speaker at a recent meeting of the Columbus Lions Club. She explained that her office serves Polk and Rutherford County citizens based on their ability to see, not their income. North Carolina provides aids, free of charge, to help them live as independently as possible. The state also provides training to enable them to cope with progressive vision loss, as appropriate.

Rhonda is usually in her Polk County office in the Howard Greene (DHHS) building on Wednesdays and the last Friday of each month, but she is likely to be out in the county serving her people.

The Columbus Lions like to visit known Visually Impaired Persons (VIPs) at Christmas and also in their birthday month. Rhonda provides a list of her people who consent to be visited; Government privacy regulations do not allow her to share any other information with Lions.
