Last year we served 752 children. Help us continue to make a difference!

As we prepare to celebrate our 35th anniversary, we know the next twelve months are critical and we need our VIPS supporters even more. Please help us during this challenging time by continuing your existing pledges or donations. 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.

Accountability and transparency are core values.


2019 was a year to remember.

VIPS served over 700 children across Kentucky and Indiana last fiscal year, a 15 percent increase in growth that we've experienced annually for the past four years. VIPS continues to have the expertise and infrastructure in place to serve any child identified with a visual impairment, no matter where they live. Our model of serving children in their homes and communities is the optimal way to engage families in their children's learning.

How do we use your donation?

Grants, fundraising, and private donors provide our unique services to children and their families as well as cover our operating costs.  You can give knowing your donation will directly impact the life of a child with blindness or low vision.
