Located in Fresno, Valley Center for the Blind has been providing services for the blind and visually impaired since 1975. What started as an idea for social and recreational services for the blind has grown into something so much more....and we are proud of it! VCB offers classes and resources for Fresno and the surrounding Madera, Kings and Tulare counties. Our staff is comprised of people who have a love for the Central Valley and a passion for helping those with vision loss. Always keeping up on the latest trends and technology for the visually impaired, we strive to keep our classes current and events fun. Losing sight doesn't mean losing hope. Here at VCB we hope to help you see it that way too!
At Valley Center for the Blind we join together in a spirit of dedication to assist blind and visually impaired persons 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. With over 40 years of experience, Valley Center for the Blind believes that every individual should have the opportunity to live independently and we teach adaptive techniques to make this a possibility for the visually impaired.
