The mission of CCVI is to prepare children with visual impairments, including those with multiple disabilities, to reach their highest potential in the sighted world.
Since opening our doors in 1952, CCVI has served more than 10,000 children who are blind or visually impaired and their families.
Seventy-five cents of every dollar donated to CCVI goes toward our programming. Together with our building partner Ability KC we own, operate and manage our facility at 3101 Main Street. We are grateful to all who help us achieve our mission.
CCVI's staff includes professionals in occupational, speech-language and physical therapies, as well as in the specialized instruction areas of braille and orientation and mobility. CCVI teachers are certified in Early Childhood Special Education and Blind/Partially Sighted.
CCVI is governed by a 41-member Board of Directors, composed of professionals in the areas of ophthalmology, law, business, banking, accounting, advertising, and education.
In 2000 CCVI's Board of Directors established an Advisory Board and a Medical Advisory Board of community leaders devoted to CCVI and the education of our community's children.
