Make an immediate difference in the life of a child with visual impairment.


Accountability and transparency are core values.


2017 was a year to remember.

In 2017, VIPS served 526 children in both the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the state of Indiana.  In fact, 46% more new children came to VIPS through referrals, and the total number of families served increased by 16%. VIPS underwent a new strategic plan and developed “Vision 20/20”, a goal to serve 1,000 children across Kentucky and Indiana by 2020.
