Virtual Vision Mate
The Virtual Vision Mate program gives volunteers an opportunity to engage in friendly conversations with people who are blind or partially sighted.
Your support is urgently needed during this unprecedented time. You can schedule your chats on a set day and time every week, or you can schedule week-to-week, whatever works for both of you.
Make a difference for people who are blind or partially sighted by providing sighted assistance and companionship to a person in your community who is blind or partially sighted.
