Vista Center Hosted the 2018 Northern California Braille Challenge

Vista Center was proud to host the 2018 Northern California Braille Challenge on March 3rd. This competition is for students that are blind and visually impaired to test their braille skills in five categories: reading comprehension, braille spelling, chart and graph reading

We are thankful to the Braille Challenge donors: Lena Palmer, Braille Revival League of California, Cub Scouts of America Pack 77, Yvonne and David Boxerman and the Silicon Valley Council of the Blind. We could not have done it without the awesome volunteers from the Honor Society at Homestead High and the Delta Gammas from Santa Clara University.

"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."
