Mission Statement

SAAVI cultivates growth and opportunity for blind people through nonvisual skills training; demonstrating that all challenges have solutions, while fostering self-efficacy through empowerment and confidence.

Description

Saavi Services for the Blind is a blindness rehabilitation training center; providing skills training in nonvisual techniques to people of all ages.

Whether a student is new to blindness or has received training in the past and would like to learn new skills, our goal is to provide skills training so our students may lead productive, independent lives. Our programs serve a variety of individuals of all ages, from children to seniors, all with the goal of providing confidence and skill-building opportunities through training and education.

By participating in our programs, our students can gain the confidence and skills that allow them to return to the workforce, pursue secondary education, or begin the path towards a new career.

Saavi believes in a world where blind individuals are determined, bold, and self-reliant - contributing locally, nationally, and throughout the world. It’s not what you can see that matters; it’s what you can do!
