About

Mission I'm-Possible is coming to your hometown... Don't worry, this message will not self-destruct, but it is an offer you shouldn't refuse. If you can shop, drive, read and sort mail then you can do the "Impossible" for someone who is blind. These simple everyday tasks which we perform without a second thought are either exhausting or impossible for your neighbor who is legally blind.

Requirements to be a great volunteer include:

  • a desire to help others;
  • a pleasant demeanor;
  • a good reading/speaking voice;
  • average reading skills;
  • organizational or planning abilities;
  • a good driving record;
  • a clear criminal history;
  • two references
  • access to a car with proof of insurance;
  • a minimum of $50/100k liability and $5,000 of property damage coverage.

Volunteers will be matched within three to five miles of home or work but will need to participate in a telephone orientation session and sighted guide training.
