Braille Institute offers a wide array of programs and services designed to help people with vision loss lead enriched and fulfilling lives. Funded entirely by private donations, all of our services are completely free of charge.
At our 5 Regional Centers and the more than 220 Outreach Locations throughout Southern California we offer free services for Adults, Young Adults, Youth and Children. We also have a fleet of Mobile Solutions vans that travel throughout the Southland, bringing services to your community.
Our award-winning Braille Institute Library offers more than 1.4 million books on audio, in braille, and in large-print format, for those who are visually impaired or physically disabled. Our new technology centers, called Connection Pointe, are now open and can help you learn about the latest in mainstream and accessible technology.
Braille Institute also sponsors a number of National Programs that extend our reach across the county. The Braille Challenge, a literacy competition for the best and brightest visually impaired students in the country, and Special Collection, a program that delivers free books to blind youth have a national reach. New programs like Cane Quest are quickly growing. Finally, we offer a number of Digital Programs that provide service using mobile technology.
All of these services are offered free of charge thanks to the support of our donors.
