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.
