MissionTo cultivate growth and opportunity for blind people through nonvisual skills training; gaining the knowledge that all challenges have solutions, and fostering self-efficacy, empowerment and confidence.
What We DoSAAVI Services for the Blind is a blindness rehabilitation training center; providing skills training in low vision and nonvisual techniques to people of all ages.
Whether a student is new to blindness; has received training in the past and would like to learn new skills; or if an individual is experiencing vision loss for the first time, our goal is to provide skills training so our students may lead productive and independent lives. Our programs serve a variety of individuals of all ages, from children to seniors, all with the goal of providing confidence and skill building opportunities, through training and education.
By participating in any number of our programs, our students can gain confidence and the skills that allow them to return to the work force, pursue secondary education, or begin the path towards a new career.
