The Center for the Visually Impaired’s long term commitment to our mission has been in place since 1988. We work to ensure that blind and visually impaired individuals lead successful lives in their workplace, at home and in their communities. Our goal is to enhance the lives and opportunities of our clients through a dedicated curriculum and support system that focuses on job training and employment, Independent Living skills, Technology Training, Children’s services and well as a multitude of community services.
Communities and lives are transformed so that people who are blind achieve personal success.
The Center for the Visually Impaired, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) designated Agency governed by a diverse Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is governed by Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws (Updated June 1st, 2013) required of every 501 (c) (3).
In 1988, the Agency began as a private nonprofit Agency dedicated to provided training and support to blind and visually impaired individuals. At that time, seniors were the focus. However, with the continued demand for services and programs, the Agency has expanded services to those ranging in age from 6 years old to over 100. We began serving only residents in Volusia County, but now serve four counties with the main office located in Daytona Beach.
As a responsible steward of State grants, the Center for the Visually Impaired’s small administrative staff enables the Agency to maintain a 14% administrative (as indicated in our last audited financial statement).
