Vision Together

Be part of the journey of hope!


At Valley Center for the Blind we join together in a spirit of dedication to assist persons who are blind and visually impaired in experiencing a more independent and opportunity filled life. These efforts are achieved through specialized methods of training and education provided by our professional staff. We believe that every individual, regardless of disability, can accomplish their desired goals provided the proper instruction and support.


Valley Center for the Blind is an inspiring place dedicated to providing people experiencing vision loss with a safe and engaging place to find support, community and high-level training programs.

Our Core Courses consist of Assistive-Technology, Braille, Independent Living Skills and Orientation and Mobility. We also host a variety of classes, support groups and workshops to provide participants with a well-rounded and caring educational experience. Our S.C.O.R.E. Program (Students Conquering Obstacles for the Realization of Employment) is a program specially designed for high school and college aged students to learn important skills in self-advocacy, job exploration and career readiness.

VCB also offers Social Programs in the form of our Creative Recreation Program which hosts a variety of fun opportunities to engage with our amazing participants. Join us as we seek to make a difference in the lives of those with vision loss!
