The Blind Center of Nevada, one of Nevada's oldest charities in Las Vegas. Our mission is to assist people who are blind or visually impaired in reaching their highest physical, social, intellectual and economic potential, through personal development, social interaction and meaningful employment. We're committed to providing a personal path to hope, independence and the pursuit of greatness for each of our members and the only center serving the blind and visually impaired community in the state.

Finding Hope: Life doesn’t stop with blindness - but for many, the hopelessness runs deep. We meet people where they are—providing emotional rescue, a caring shelter, a welcoming community, and counseling to help members see beyond their visual impairment. Through the Blind Center of Nevada, people find a loving, social refuge—a place that understands and truly cares.

Learning Independence: Within our encouraging family environment, we help members see beyond their visual limits and learn to live an independent life. Our skills training, educational resources, and ongoing assistance all work together to ignite a can-do-spirit that defies boundaries and fuels personal growth.

Pursuit of Greatness: Best of all, the Center helps members visualize their true potential and work toward achieving great things. Through a wide range of programs—including music, art, fitness, education, and vocational mentorship—we help people reach goals they can be proud of. Greatness isn’t limited to those with sight. We help members achieve great things while living lives that are unbound—and unlimited.

It is through the generosity of people like you that the Blind Center is able to offer not only the essential services for those impacted by vision loss, but to create a pathway to greatness that everyone deserves.
