We need your help...

With the recent events, we need our VIPS supporters even more. Please help us during this challenging time by continuing your existing pledges or donations. 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. Thank you!
