About the Foundation For Blind Children

Serving the Blind and Low-Vision of All Ages

The Foundation for Blind Children was founded in 1952 by parents of blind children who wanted services for their blind children in Phoenix, instead of having to send them to the State Institution for the Blind in Tucson.

The Foundation for Blind Children serves the blind and visually impaired of all ages, from birth to currently 102 years old. As the only agency of its kind in Arizona, the Foundation for Blind Children is an essential resource to families and children with blindness or low vision.

With three Valley locations (East Valley, West Valley and Central Phoenix), we strive to serve as “the” community’s resource for blind, visually impaired, and multi-handicapped children, adults, and their families.

Our Mission

To provide education, tools and services that enable all persons with vision loss to achieve greater independence.

Our Vision

To have a world where vision loss is a diagnosis, not a disability.
