GREAT NEWS FOR VISTA CENTER

Sharks Foundation LogoThe Sharks Foundation dedicated to enhancing the lives of youth and families with an emphasis in education, health and safety, and character development, has  chosen Vista Center’s Youth and Family Activities component as one of their 2015 – 2016 grant recipients.  Their support will help continue the amazing programs that are in place, as well as create new recreational activities that help blind and visually impaired youth develop skills that will enable them to live life independently, and networks of support for their families.  THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT!!!!

Welcome

O&M instruction at Caltrain StationAt Vista Center, we advance our mission of empowering individuals who are blind or visually impaired to embrace life to the fullest by serving individuals of all ages, living in San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and San Benito Counties, who are threatened by loss of independence due to moderate or severe vision impairment.

 

Our highly professional and caring staff provides a comprehensive array of individualized rehabilitation services in the client’s own environment, or in one of our two warmly inviting centers, to an ever-increasing number of people who could benefit from them.

 

"Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired is a crucial organization that affords individuals the opportunity to live an independent life.
Having grown up with two blind parents I have first hand knowledge of the life changing support Vista Center provides in assisting individuals suddenly faced with blindness."
Jim Plunkett, former Vista Center board member
