The Blind Center of Nevada was founded in 1955 by Audrey Bascum Tait. With the help of the Lions, what began as a simple group visually impaired people gathering on Audrey's back porch soon grew large enough
that, in 1960 the Lions gave the Center a two room- building in Las Vegas. The Center has maintained its home at the same location ever since.
The purpose of the Blind Center of Nevada is assist blind and visually impaired persons of all ages in reaching their highest physical, social, intellectual and economic potential. The challenges associated with blindness may be overcome with determination, education, training and opportunity.
Programs and activities offered by the Center are to
assist blind and visually impaired persons. To
achieve these objectives, the Center focuses
upon three primary areas: Personal Development, Social Interaction, and Meaningful Employment.
It is the purpose of the Blind Center of Nevada Committee to assist the Center in furhering these objectives.
