From Leslie Eatherly, Director of Development at Savannah Center for Blind and Low Vision:
In 1963, a group of people came together to create a place in the community where those who were blind or visually impaired could come and learn skills to compensate for their vision loss. Since that time, the Savannah Center for Blind and Low Vision has evolved to meet the needs of more than 400 clients each year and is southeast Georgia’s only training facility to help those who are blind or visually impaired rehabilitate towards independent living. The Center is located at 1141 Cornell Avenue and offers services such as Low Vision, Vision Rehabilitation, Orientation & Mobility, Assistive Technology, Youth Services, Job Readiness, and Social/Peer Support. The Center prides itself on making a difference in the lives of those who are blind or visually impaired and has found job placement for 20 clients since the beginning of the year. The Center covers 29 southeast Georgia counties and in the process of extending services and partnering with Dr. Joshua Parmalee in the Brunswick area. As the Center continues to grow in its new home, so do the number of clients throughout the community. Those who live day to day with blindness or visual impairment, now have a place to get the support they need…regardless of their financial challenges.
