Blind Community Center

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 40 people are interested
The current BCC building replaced the original in 2000 and was completely funded through donations from Lions Clubs, generous individuals, and many local organizations. Plaques inside the lobby pay tribute to all donors to whom we are very grateful.

Blind and visually impaired students attend craft classes at the BCC every weekday. One of our goals at the BCC is to foster independence. Most of our students are not totally blind, they suffer from varying degrees of low vision. Volunteers don't make the crafts for the blind, they help students make the crafts for themselves. Our participants are very proud of their creations and enter some of them into the San Diego County Fair every year.

Crafts include fabric wreaths, safety pin and beaded lamps, beaded angels, leather items, macrame, copper tooling pictures, crocheting, knitting on a loom to make hats and scarves. Our crafters make Holiday items, lamps, jewelry, and many other items. We try and help them make whatever they want to make.

On Mondays and Tuesdays craft class hours are 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. If you enjoy working with fun people and like crafting, this may be an opportunity for you. We serve lunch every day at 11:30 a.m. so crafting stops for lunch and resumes at 12:00 p.m. Please call or email if you have questions and would like to join our Blind Community Center craft class.
