Home. Made. In the Heart of New York

For those with vision loss, home is a place to be made.

Alphapointe’s newest location has already begun changing the lives of New Yorkers who are blind or visually impaired.
Right now, the property in Richmond Hill, Queens, is an industrial facility.
With your help, we’re transforming it into a place to call home.

Because our new Richmond Hill location consists of 19 separate buildings, donors are being offered the opportunity to name a building. For $200,000, you can leave a lasting legacy. Within our new warehouse, you can also fund and name specific departments where products are made. These $200,000 contributions can be made with a three- to four-year pledge.
