Operating remotely has not stopped TIC from carrying out our vital mission. We have continued to serve our listeners and are keeping them up- to- date with what's happening in their communities. 

Due to TIC's incredibly selfless volunteers, we have had the ability to produce the most important content remotely to ensure our listeners can continue to live autonomous, independent lives.

We also have been broadcasting messages from Commissioner D'Arcangelo, Commissioner of The Massachusetts Commission for the Blind. (MCB) to keep our listeners up to speed with the operations of MCB amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

How can TIC help YOU?! Do you have a message that you need to the low vision or senior population to hear?! Let TIC be your voice! Simply give us a call at 781-834-4400 or send us an email with your message to general@ticnetwork.org and we will broadcast it to our 30,000 listeners across the state of Massachusetts.Thank you. We hope you all stay healthy and safe.
