I was moved by the dedication of the staff at the BCLC. They provide a caring, creative learning environment that allows the kids to thrive. I am forever changed by my time at BCLC.

This school is such a great place for the children! It really does make learning fun with such caring employees and neat activities to help the kids learn in a variety of ways. I really valued my experience helping at BCLC.

I have been volunteering for several years and a board member at this time. I have been so impressed with the dedication of the staff to bring the best curriculum for these blind and visually impaired children. I also see the improvements that these children make in their time with BCLC. I've heard the parents and their surprise when doctors told them their child could never succeed in certain tasks such as walking, and BCLC has these children walking and excelling in many other areas of their development at an almost unbelievable time frame. It is always difficult to fund raise with a small organization but this learning center is one of the most important places a person can send their child to get a right foot hold to becoming independent. The staff spends many extra hours of their time just to be sure all of these children are getting the maximum help they need.

I attended the 7th Annual Walk at their serene campus on May 14th, 2011. I was very moved by their alumni Cody Lee performing on stage to warm up the walk participants. I was welcomed at the entrance and learnt what they have been doing for the Blind kids. It's amazing.

I was part of the Walk team from Voip group.

I have seen the commitment of the staff.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help to get more resources for the children attending the Center
