Vision Mate

Main Content

Our Vision Mate program matches people living with vision loss with trained volunteers for companionship and one-on-one assistance with everyday tasks and errands.

Vision mate volunteers assist individuals with a variety of activities, including reading mail, grocery shopping, errands, labeling and organizing household items, as well as enjoying leisure and recreational activities together – like playing cards and going for walks. 

Need a hand? If there is something in your life that can be enhanced by a vision mate, we’ll work with you.
