“Vista Center has provided me support and education about the tools available to raise a curious child.  I have complete confidence that they will continue to provide me with the resources to help my son develop into a confident teenager and an independent adult.” – Emilie Bard (a Vista Center client’s mother)

Invest in Vista Center’s services to assist our clients and their families. Our Spring Challenge begins next week, Tuesday, May 2nd, and our Board of Directors has generously pledged a matching challenge gift of $25,000.  We ask for your help NOW to raise the funds to meet this match.

"Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired is a crucial organization that affords individuals the opportunity to live an independent life.
Having grown up with two blind parents I have first hand knowledge of the life changing support Vista Center provides in assisting individuals suddenly faced with blindness."
Jim Plunkett, former Vista Center board member
