Center for Visually Impaired Adults


We want to help you improve your independence and self-reliance by helping you learn new ways of doing things you have always done. You can virtually continue to do most everything you have done all your life with a few adaptations to accommodate your newly-found needs due to vision loss.

We offer a year-round program to improve an individual's quality of life. Learning to adjust to and accept the challenges offered by vision loss is easier when one has the kind of help we can offer. 

If you would like to help us to improve the lives of visually impaired adults in Placer County, please send a check to: Center for Visually Impaired Adults of Placer County at 1212 High St., Auburn CA 95603. We are a tax exempt 501c3 organization and provide acknowledgement letters for your tax purpose convenience.

We invite you to visit us on Wednesday mornings. Please confirm your visit with us at (530) 863-7773 or (530) 888-6744, especially during the last 2 weeks in August and during the Thanksgiving and Holiday seasons, as we may be closed so our participants can enjoy time with friends and family.
