For over 80 years, the expertise of Carroll Center staff has provided help for thousands of blind and visually impaired persons with diverse opportunities for success and independent living.
“The Carroll Center has an amazing ability to fit a square visually impaired person into the round peg of life with such dignity that it felt like that’s how it should be.”
“They emboldened me to get out, to use public transportation, to move about with the white cane, and to find my way using all of my senses.”
