At the Earle Baum Center, we teach people with vision loss the skills needed to live independent, successful lives. To practice those skills, gain confidence, and explore various interests and activities, we have a Learning Independence For Enjoyment (LIFE) program. One of our most active groups is our tandem bicycle group, who call themselves the "Baum Squad"!
