What is VIM?
Over forty years ago a few friends, all blind or visually handicapped, met in a park to visit and enjoy their sandwiches. They discussed their common concerns and challenges.
The group began meeting regularly and their numbers grew. They decided to formally organize.
In 1983 they incorporated as Blind and Vision Impaired of Marin, Inc. as a 501(c)(3) Not for Profit corporation . Their membership continued to expand.
Today they have six support groups throughout the County; even one for Spanish speaking members. They have art classes (with the aid of the Marin Society of Arts), Talking Book Clubs, outings and a monthly luncheon meeting with entertainment. Classes in the fundamentals of Braille are being developed.
The backbone of Vision Impaired Marin is its volunteers. They drive, answer phones, arrange luncheons and entertainment assist classes and help in so many ways. VIM's expanding services need more volunteers. A phone call to VIM (415-459-5066) will provide answers as to how you can serve the visually handicapped.
VIM is not government funded. All funding is derived from private sources. Gifts from individuals, local businesses and organizations keep the programs active.
Additional financial support is needed.
Won't you help with your tax deductible gift? You will have the appreciation and thanks of the many, many people VIM now serves and will serve.
