The Jewish Institute for the Blind provides a wealth of programs and services adapted to suit the needs, interests, and capabilities of children and adults in the Blind and Visually Impaired community. These programs help guide students as they forge their own paths toward independence through education, rehabilitation, health, social welfare, and a caring, knowledgeable staff.

110 years of providing service and education have put us in a singular position to design and develop programs that address the unique needs of our students and put them at a distinct advantage in society. Our programs foster, encourage, and define our mission statement “to help raise a student’s self-esteem so that he will not depend on others for help, but will himself become a helpful member of society”.
