Letter from the Chief Executive Officer.

Justin-Cave-color-240x300On behalf of the Board of Directors and Staff of Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired (AWVLC), I want to personally thank you for interest in our organization. Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired (AWVLC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides an avenue to individuals who are visually impaired and or blind gain independence after vision loss. AWVLC provides these individuals the classes and support they need to live independently again. Our services include Braille, Orientation and Mobility (walking with the white cane), Independent Living Skills, and Assistive Computer Technology. AWVLC prides itself on being the only institution in Kern County to provide these services to a community that is in desperate need of reducing the amount of people who are living in darkness.

Thank you for your interest in AWVLC!

Justin L. Cave, MPA.
