Valley Center for the Blind is inspired and dedicated to providing people experiencing vision loss with a safe and engaging place to find support, community and high-level training programs.

Our Rehabilitation Core Courses consist of Assistive-Technology, Braille, Independent Living Skills and Orientation and Mobility. We also host a variety of classes, support groups and workshops to provide participants with a well-rounded and caring educational experience. Each individual’s rehabilitation journey is custom designed to meet that person’s needs and goals. We will walk with you on your journey to surpass your own expectations.

VCB also works together with clients to prepare, find, and retain employment, both at VCB and in the community. Our Employment Services and Industry programs help those with vision loss discover their true capacity for meaningful employment.

Join us as we seek to make a difference in the lives of those with vision loss!


At Valley Center for the Blind, we help people cope with vision loss and regain their confidence, emotional wellness, and ability to perform daily activities and meet their individual goals.
