The Blind Center of Nevada Helps People Who are Blind See Their Potential
They are people like you and like me. Mothers and fathers, sons and daughters. Friends.
They’re workers – an Office Manager, a Chef, an Executive, a Warehouse Worker, a Stay-At-Home Mom…
Then blindness strikes; sometimes quickly, sometimes gradual. The causes of blindness vary – a car accident, a Lasik surgery gone badly, a casualty of war, or a common disease like diabetes, but no matter what the cause sight is gone or greatly diminished.
Lives change. Roles are different. Hopelessness can set in. Nobody plans on going blind.
The Blind Center of Nevada is here to help that person put their life back together, to learn the beauty of individual worth, to gain some of the independence that was lost, and to build a new circle of friends. And, most of all to rebuild hope and feel loved.
Some at The Blind Center of Nevada have experienced blindness since birth. They too face unique challenges.
But whether a person’s site is lost later in life or perhaps if it never existed, The Blind Center of Nevada is here to provide training, jobs, friendship, activities, and love.
So you see, it is a happy place, a wonderful place where people who are blind both see and reach their true potential.
