About Vision Impaired of Marin (VIM)

In 1974 a few friends, all blind or visually impaired, met 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
(Federal ID# 94-2855368). Their membership continued to expand.

Today we have seven support groups throughout the County; even one for Spanish speaking members. We have art classes (with the aid of the Marin Society of Artists), Talking Book Clubs, Ukulele classes, outings and a semi-monthly catered luncheon meeting with entertainment by Bread & Roses.
