    The Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired assists visually impaired adults in Greater Boston and beyond.

    The goal of the Volunteers for Vision Program is to provide blind individuals with confidential, reliable, one-on-one assistance so that they do not have to rely on family, friends or neighbors to complete tasks that require vision. Many blind individuals do not have a regular source of assistance, and need to conduct many of the same business transactions that sighted individuals do — reading mail, filling out forms, paying bills, balancing checkbooks, shopping for clothes and groceries, sending out holiday or birthday cards, writing letters, and more. Our volunteer program offers a reliable source of assistance that helps visually impaired people live with dignity and a sense of independence.

    Our Volunteers range from teens to retirees, and live across the state of Massachusetts.
