BlindConnect serves those affected by vision loss and provides blind Nevadans opportunities to increase independence.
BlindConnect is a 501(C)3 nonprofit which offers information and services to Nevada’s blind and visually impaired population through skills training, support group, and other valuable resources.
Vision loss may take away the window to the world, but not the heart and soul of life. Whether due to illness, accident or genetics, vision impairment impacts the way a person must live their life.
BlindConnect exists to provide visually impaired Nevadans the resources and knowledge they need to make their lives more fulfilling.
Founded in 1998, BlindConnect is Southern Nevada's primary nonprofit source for those in need of resources for vision services, referrals, peer support, educational programs and more.
Blindness is frightening. It is isolating. It is life-altering. But, the visually impaired don't have to face those challenges alone. Angela's House is Nevada's only facility designed specifically to offer life skills training, resources, and peer support for participants - all in one location. Angela's House is the heart of BlindConnect. Here, visually impaired will find a safe place to unite for strength, support and invaluable training and information on living with vision loss.
