Welcome Homes for the Blind has significantly increased its services and provides quality professional support to its clients. This transitioned from owning its own facilities to one that now outsources services with measurably less expense and increased services throughout the area it serves. An excellent organization that provides a needed service. I have more than 20 years experience in the field of blind services.

Welcome Homes is alive and well. They are now in the position to assist hundreds of the visually impaired and blind population as opposed to the 36 it was limited to when in their own building. Whoever wrote the bad review obviously did not have their facts.

The "home" in Welcome Home no longer exists. It was closed in 2004. The Board's attempt to redirect this organization into a nursing home certification service (Welcome Homes Residential Services) has failed the past 3 years to obtain a single member nursing home. Money sent to this organization pays the one and a half staff their salaries and pays rent, etc., with little benefit to the blind.
