Lilac Blind Foundation

The mission of the Lilac Blind Foundation is to provide blind and partially sighted people with training and adaptive aids that will allow them to live satisfying lives by restoring, maintaining, or increasing their independence. Our priority is to help blind and partially sighted people gain the same access as sighted people to available technology and informational resources. With proper training, and possibly adaptive aids, blind and partially sighted people can continue the same activities they enjoyed before their vision loss, and remain living independently within their homes.
