Imagine waking up and you can't see. Complete darkness... And it doesn't change. The feeling of anxiety and desperation can be overwhelming. How do you get around? How do you eat? It can happen to any of us and if it does, you hope there's a place for you to get help. By the grace of God and with support from the members of our community, the Blind Center of Nevada is here to help.
The Blind Center is one of Nevada's oldest charities and the only center serving the blind and visually impaired community in the state. Our mission includes helping our members in these areas:
Finding Hope: Life doesn’t stop with blindness, but for many, the hopelessness runs deep. We meet people where they are—providing emotional rescue, a caring shelter, a welcoming community and counseling to help members see beyond their visual impairment. Through the Blind Center of Nevada, people find a loving, social refuge—a place that understands and truly cares.
Learning Independence: Within our encouraging family environment, we help members see beyond their visual limits and learn to live an independent life. Our skills training, educational resources and ongoing assistance all work together to ignite a can-do-spirit that defies boundaries and fuels personal growth.
Pursuit of Greatness: Best of all, our center helps members visualize their true potential and work toward achieving great things. Through a wide range of programs—including music, art, fitness, education, and vocational mentorship—we help people reach goals they can be proud of. Greatness isn’t limited to those with sight. We help members achieve great things while living lives that are unbound—and unlimited.
It is through the generosity of people like you that the Blind Center is able to offer not only the essential services for those impacted by vision loss, but to create a pathway to greatness that everyone deserves.
Your donation counts in making a difference in the lives of people who have lost their sight. Please help us to make a bigger impact today!
