Celebrating Independence

Yesterday, we celebrated July 4th as our national day of independence. To commemorate this day in American history, family and friends gather for festive parades and wave American flags. While listening to high school marching bands they enjoy cook outs of hamburgers, hot dogs and potato salad. The day ends with large crowds gathering for bright sparkly firework displays.

While we celebrate this day of independence one day of the year, CVI celebrates independence all year round. By providing services and programs that focus on independence with dignity, CVI helps those with vision loss regain their lives.

From learning how to safely and confidently cross the street, to cooking and preparing meals, to using a computer with assistive technology, our clients gain the skills they need to live more productively. So, while celebrating the red, white and blue, take a minute to share with us an example of how CVI has helped you or someone you know achieve independence with dignity.
