Future In Sight serves thousands of New Hampshire residents of all ages who live with vision loss or blindness, serving more than 3,400 in the last year alone. And, there are thousands more to reach. "We know there are children, adults, and seniors experiencing vision loss whose daily life activities would be enhanced by our personalized services - if they only knew we were a phone call away," says Nancy Druke, VP for Program Services at Future In Sight. "That's our goal - to transform the lives of individuals who are blind or have profound vision loss."
The 16th Annual Walk for Sight coming up on June 1st will accomplish many goals, including raising awareness of the low vision rehabilitation services Future In Sight offers, often starting in a client's own home. The Walk for Sight is less than two miles and also raises critical funding for such services. Last year, 500 walkers and 100 volunteers had a great time together while raising $100,000 to help with the $1.7 million cost of delivering our programs and services. When you participate in the Walk for Sight, you are helping to strengthen and expand our education programs, occupational therapy services, adaptive technology training, and recreational activities for children, adults and seniors living with profound sight loss or blindness.
