The mission of the Blind Community Center is to enrich the lives of blind and visually impaired adults and children, preparing them for a normal, active life in a society that is principally sighted.
We provide an environment for personal growth, social integration and interaction, and the development of individual skills and talents. Through sharing, caring, tolerance and respect, participants develop a sense of family and community.
Our calendar page lists the social, recreation, and education activities we offer to promote independence and self-reliance. We encourage independent travel, through the use of white canes, guide dogs, and other tools.
Some of our most popular craft and activity programs include:
Our volunteer force includes some of our members, who answer the phone and staff our front desk. We believe that by taking responsibility for our own facilities, we put into action our motto:
“Blind people are just people, like everyone else; we just can’t see as well as others.”
