VISIONS borough community advisory boards are composed of volunteers who work together with VISIONS staff to achieve two goals. The first is to raise awareness about VISIONS services so that more individuals of all ages who are blind or severely visually impaired access the help they need and the second is to raise funds for VISIONS. The money that is raised by each borough board is used for VISIONS services within the borough.
