About

There is an urgent need for volunteers to shop, read and drive with our consumers who are blind and living in Wethersfield and Rocky Hill or the south end of Hartford. If you have ever wondered how a person who is blind manages their day to day activities and responsibilities, there is no more need to wonder. With a little technology, a little public transit and a good neighbor like you, there is a lot that they do. They work, they shop and they do all the things we love to do. So get involved now, it is easy!!!
