BLINDCONNECT…SETTING OUR SIGHTS ON INDEPENDENCE.
Blindconnect is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in 1998 by Jean Peyton. The goal of Blindconnect is to provide information, resources, and peer support for local residents living with visual impairment or blindness.
Thanks to generous contributors, Blindconnect is providing life-changing services to visually impaired youth and adults in the Las Vegas valley. The ultimate goal is to secure a home to serve as NEVADA’S FIRST one-stop training center where clients can master the challenges of vision loss in a comfortable, home-like setting. The training center will be called “Angela’s House.”
At Creative Vision Communications we help Blind Connect with press releases, media outreach and social media for their fundraisers throughout the year including Blind Date, a dining in the dark experience. This annual dinner allows diners to experience eating without seeing. With sleep shades on, participants enjoy a 3 course meal realizing the challenges those without vision go through everyday with the simple task of eating.
The Blindconnect office is now located at the CSN Charleston Campus in the Loux Building at 6375 W. Charleston, WCL # 200, Las Vegas, NV 89146. To find out how to donate or get involved, please visit www.Blindconnect.org or call 702-631-9009, or email founder Jean Peyton at Contact@blindconnect.org
