At New Vision for Independence, our mission is to eliminate barriers to independence for people with vision loss through rehabilitation, community education, advocacy, and support services.
We provide skills training throughout Lake, Sumter, and The Villages in rural central Florida, sponsored in part by the State of Florida Division of Blind Services. Our support services are open to anyone, anywhere with a visual impairment.
The Four Pillars: What We Do
New Vision has several special events throughout the year to bring awareness to both the challenges of vision loss and how those challenges can be overcome with training and support. Check out our Events Page for more info.
We also look for opportunities to give presentations. Reach out to Mykal to book a speaker: email@example.com.
Our team is also available to provide custom trainings on how to deliver excellent customer service to people with vision loss. Learn more about our trainings
