Make a Gift. Make a Difference.
Your gift to Helen Keller Services makes it possible for us to give people who are visually impaired, blind or deaf-blind access to the training, technology and support that can help them to live their best lives.
At Helen Keller Services for the Blind and the Helen Keller National Center for Deaf-Blind Youths and Adults, we create individualized training programs tailored to the unique needs and goals of each person. Our clients and students work one-on-one with experts in the rehabilitation field to develop skills and strategies that will help them in every area of their daily lives—from managing their homes to traveling safely to succeeding on the job to communicating with loved ones. Our mission is to give them the tools to live, work and thrive in the communities of their choice. And you can be a part of that.
The work we do at Helen Keller Services not only helps the individuals we work with, but makes a positive impact on families, businesses and the community as a whole. Below are some of the amazing and inspiring stories that came from students who benefitted greatly from the services they received from Helen Keller Services.Learn about ways to make a gift
