Last year, despite challenges from the pandemic we still served over 700 children. We need your help to continue our critical work to make a difference in the lives of children with vision loss!

We need our VIPS supporters help more than ever during this uniquely challenging time with the gift of a new donation or pledge, or continuing your existing your support. If you are not a monthly donor--now would be a great time to initiate a monthly gift. The families we serve depend on our teachers and we depend on you to help us in our critical mission to provide early intervention to every child with blindness or low vision.

"The touch of your hand over my hand has taught me strength and hope. When we were told our daughter Jaycee had a visual impairment, we were scared and unsure what to do. When we finally found out about VIPS, we made the tough decision to leave our friends and family in our small town in Minnesota. Through VIPS we've found another amazing family that has taught our daughter so many amazing things beyond our belief!"

-Dani, Mother of Jaycee
