How to Help

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for VISIONS. VISIONS volunteers assist with reading mail, and other types of written materials, escorting clients in the community for shopping and appointments and helping in a variety of programs (i.e. quilting, arts & crafts, knitting, photography, ceramics, technology training). VISIONS volunteers make a real difference every day in the lives of people who are blind and visually impaired.
