“Alphapointe is a wonderful place and a safe environment. The staff and clients are so helpful. My general feelings about blindness have changed. I feel less like a minority, more confident and at peace with my situation.”

– Mary

Happy and confident again.
Keep up the good work!

“I use my cane much more effectively. I am enjoying my walks again. When we were on vacation last week, I ventured out on my own a little bit. I was able to use what I learned and get from my hotel room all the way across the resort to breakfast on my own. It was good to get my freedom back.”
