Our clients need your help!
The financial impact to Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired of no face-to-face contact due to the COVID virus is overwhelming. Months of “virtual and remote” operations will cause an extensive financial burden, as 90% of our programs and services to clients are delivered in face-to-face sessions.
Vista Center’s response to this crisis, is a Board supported commitment to serve our community, regardless of the negative financial impact. Our staff has rapidly adjusted service delivery, content, and training methodology by leveraging technology tools, so that we can continue to provide services to our 3,300 vulnerable clients. Isolation, depression, exaggerated anxiety, and heightened fear, are growing mental health issues surfacing for visually impaired individuals in the chaos of uncertain times. We are hoping that community members can help us, while we are losing money….
