Mission
To raise funds to support the Virginia Rehabilitation Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired in areas where there are State Budget limitations, including physical center needs and  recreation and transportation needs of its students and volunteers.
Impact
Aided students from the Rehabilitation Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired in re-entering the work force after their loss of vision.
Needs

We need volunteers at the center and support from Richmond-area Employers for our summer internships. Most of our financial support has come from Central Virginia Lions Clubs and former students of the center, which we need to expand to increase support for the Volunteers and Students at the center.

Background
The Volunteer Council, incorporated in 1989 as a nonprofit organization, was established to provide support for the Virginia Rehabilitation Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired and its clients.
 
The Council consists of representatives from business, civic and community organizations, church groups, sororities and fraternities, staff, volunteers and former clients of the Center and other interested individuals.
 
The Virginia Rehabilitation Center for the Blind is a state agency with programs administered under the direction of the Virginia Department for the Visually Handicapped. The Center's primary objective is to help visually impaired and blind individuals overcome the barriers imposed by loss of vision and regain their independence.
 
The Center provides a program of evaluation and adjustment skills training for visually impaired adolescents and adults. Here they learn skills necessary for independence, efficiency and safety on the job, at home and in the community.
 
Visually impaired individuals come to the Center from throughout Virginia. Training lasts from one week to a year depending on specific needs. Counselors, medical staff, vocational evaluators, rehabilitation instructors, orientation and mobility specialists, other professionals and a core of dedicated volunteers assist the Center's clients in achieving personal, social and vocational goals.
 
 
The Volunteer Council assists the Virginia Rehabilitation Center for the Blind by:
  • providing equipment for independent living skills training.
  • providing tickets and sports equipment for social development activities for blind adolescents.
  • funding for recreational activities for students such as roller skating and rock climbing.
  • hosting holiday parties and dances for the Center's clients.
  • providing furnishings to enhance the attractiveness of the Center's campus.
  • assisting with clothing needs for clients entering the job market.
  • providing transportation for volunteers at the center.
 
The Volunteer Council promotes public awareness on blindness and rehabilitation by:
  • recruiting volunteers for special needs.
  • staffing blindness awareness exhibits and activities during community festivals.
  • enlisting community support to provide transportation for clients to places of worship or other community activities.
