Review for Vista Center for the Blind Visually Impaired, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This nonprofit serves blind community members as well as people with new diagnosis - after they visit a doctor and are told their vision is declining.

I am a donor, because I believe in lifting all community members who suffer trauma of any kind. People with visually impairment can live a full life with dignity and joy, and can make positive contributions to our community. The organization provides quality, compassionate services and is a wonderful nonprofit to work for.

How will one maintain an independent life?
Read mail? Get to work? Cook a favorite meal?
++ Vista Center has workshops, classes and social workers to teach people how to do these daily living skills with limited vision.

Depression is common for people suffering from the trauma of vision loss.
++ Vista Center provides social and emotional support with one-on-one counseling, peer-to-peer support groups, and social/recreational activities to manage the distress of these health challenges.

How can technology help? Are there voice/audio tools for visually impairment?
++Vision Center provides a breadth of technology assistance and training for people of all ages and technical abilities to assist with a variety of life tasks.
