The mission of the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired is to prepare children with visual impairments, including those with multiple disabilities, to reach their highest potential in the sighted world.

Our doors are open for any infant to school-age child whose visual impairment is significant enough to adversely affect his or her educational performance. Children and their parents come here to discover a truly unique, positive environment with innovative and stimulating programs customized for each student.

How You Can Get Involved

CCVI has dozens of volunteer opportunities for those who can give a little or a lot of time, for those with specific skills or for those who just want to "do something to help."
