“The more I volunteered there, the more I fell in love with the clients, the employees, and the mission of Alphapointe. It’s so exciting to see the amazing things going on at Alphapointe, and I love being a part of that and sharing it with others.”

“Great organization, great people, great mission.”
“Serving Alphapointe brings me a sense of pride knowing that we are helping our visually impaired community live a better quality of life.”

“I watch as people enter our office who are feeling hopeless, discouraged, doubtful and nervous. Many have had the experience of being told there is nothing else that can be done to help their vision or to improve the quality of their life. As I watch them leaving, I see mostly people who are encouraged, hopeful and excited about whatever help and improvements have been suggested and offered. They have hope again and often a big smile of gratitude realizing that these people understand and care.”
