Mission Statement

Braille Institute is a nonprofit organization that embraces the challenge of sight loss in all its facets and rejects its perceived limitations, with the belief that vision rehabilitation is a beginning, nit an end.


Braille Institute offers a variety of services to people who are blind and visually impaired, from mobility and technology training, to low vision rehabilitation and home visits, to arts and exercise classes, to a vast library of braille and audio titles for every age, and more. Each year, we help tens of thousands of people regain and maintain their independence. Thanks to generous donations, Braille Institute services are available free of charge.
