Vision Forward has been an important and impactful organization in the Milwaukee community for the past 100 years.
Last year marked Vision Forward Association’s centennial year of providing services to the diverse community of individuals who are blind or visually impaired and their families – all from the same location on Hawley Road in Milwaukee. What began in 1919 as an advocate group for people who were blind, has evolved into an organization that offers comprehensive services to individuals of all ages experiencing all stages of vision loss. Through the decades of services, one thing has been constant; people experiencing blindness or visual impairment want the same opportunities as their sighted peers. Individuals have turned to our organization for help in overcoming the challenges vision loss presents and have found a community of support and information available throughout their lives. Today at Vision Forward, we carry-on this important work daily and commit to the continued empowerment of people who are blind or visually impaired to have full, independent lives. During this time where change is occurring every day, one thing that continues to remain consistent – Vision Forward is here to help individuals of all ages who are learning to live with vision loss. As we continue to safely provide vital direct services in our facility, along with offering virtual services, we want to thank our generous supporters who have helped to make this possible. We invite everyone to learn more about our mission to “empower, educate and enhance the lives of individuals impacted by vision loss through all of life’s transitions”, and celebrate our 100 plus year history by helping us continue serving our community well into the future! We ask the community to continue to share our information with people facing vision loss. We look forward to seeing you soon, whether virtually or in-person. Be well!
