The Carroll Alumni program is committed to elevating the support offered to all those who’ve successfully completed a program at the Carroll Center for the Blind. Carroll Alumni members have the opportunity to create meaningful connections with other individuals experiencing vision loss, receive helpful resources and networking opportunities, attend special events, and so much more! 

The Carroll Families program aims to support, educate, and connect parents and other caregivers of children who are blind or visually impaired. We feel that sharing resources and offering emotional support for the unique needs of parents with children experiencing vision loss is critical and we look forward to growing this supportive community.
