Anchor Center for Blind Children specializes in serving young children who have serious visual impairments during their most critical years of development – birth to age five. Anchor Center is one of the only organizations in the U.S. that provides childhood intervention; special education; physical, occupational, speech-language, horticultural, and music therapies; vision care and assessments; and support services for children with limited to no sight and their families.
Specialized early childhood interventions and education can dramatically improve the developmental trajectories of children with blindness, as well as the functional vision of select children with Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI), a neurological condition affecting the brain’s ability to interpret visual information. Since our inception in 1982, our exceptional team of practitioners has helped thousands of children reach essential benchmarks, while also empowering families to encourage their child toward a life of achievement and fulfillment.
Fundraising is critical to our existence, as very little of our revenue comes from earned income or government sources. Anchor Center is over 95% privately funded through donations, grants and special events to support a $2.5 million operating budget.
