"Life After Vision Loss"

New Vision for Independence is committed to excellence in providing rehabilitation, community education, and support services for people with low vision or blindness, and their families, to promote independence, acceptance, and self-confidence.

New Vision is a 501(c)3 United Way Partner and partially funded by the Division of Blind Services, Lake County Government and other private donors.


Donations Needed for Viking Summer Camp & Other VIP Programs

Here at New Vision, we are gearing up for the inaugural VIKING summer camp (Visually Impaired Kids Investigating New Ground) for our visually impaired kids, ages 6 to 13. Plus, the teens in VITAL transition program are preparing for summer jobs and internships, and our adults and babies will continue to receive independence-building services during this time.

We need your help to make this possible! Will you make a donation today to support our programs for people of all ages with low vision or blindness in Lake, Sumter, and The Villages? Even $10 will help us make sure our neighbors with vision loss have access to the skills and tools they need to remain independent. Please make a secure online donation now! Thank you for your support. Have a great summer!

Chantel Buck, President/CEO
