To improve the quality of life for Delaware's citizens by promoting health and well-being, fostering self-sufficiency, and protecting vulnerable populations.
The Division for the Visually Impaired is Delaware’s oldest state agency, serving citizens who are visually impaired for over 100 years. The organization provides services to individuals from birth to adulthood. This organization works in part with the community to improve the safety, education and employment of individuals who are visually impaired. Some of the services that we administer include, education, rehabilitation, independent living, assistive technology training, mobility training, and employment programs. The Volunteer Services Program offers assistance to individuals with visual impairments as well. We do this by recruiting sensitive and caring volunteers who share their talents with those in need. We need volunteers to assist in a variety of ways which include Braillists, library aides, narrators, office assistants, computer lab assistants, mentors, etc.
