About Us


The Alaska Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired’s mission is to eliminate vision loss as the barrier to employment , community participation or quality of life. We are the only statewide training and resource center for vision rehabilitation for all Alaskans with uncorrectable sight loss. Since 1977 we have been helping clients meet their life and work goals and contribute their talent to family and community. In addition to our Anchorage residential and training facility, we travel to villages and towns throughout the state of Alaska. Our professionally accredited staff works with clients ranging in age from teenagers to senior citizens, offering a variety of professional services and support to communities throughout Alaska.
