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.

Accountability and transparency are core values.


VIPS Remains #VIPSstrong in Spite of the Pandemic

VIPS served 708 children across Kentucky and Indiana this last fiscal year. We continue to have the expertise and infrastructure in place to serve any child identified with a visual impairment, no matter where they live in either state. Our hybrid model of serving children in the homes and communities as well as virtually is the optimal way to engage families in their children's learning and ensure that our services go on even in the midst of a pandemic. At VIPS we call it #VIPSstrong, and strong is what we remain both for the children we serve now and the ones that will need us in the future.

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.
