It’s true that providing meaningful employment opportunities to people who are blind or low vision is central to our mission, but our support to North Texans with visual impairments doesn’t end there. We work individually with adults with vision loss to build independence in all areas of their lives.

Serving our seniors (SOS)

One of Envision Dallas’ primary outreach programs is known as Serving Our Seniors, commonly referred to as SOS. Each year, SOS impacts hundreds of North Texans living in 11 counties ranging in age from 50 to 100. Our SOS team succeeds in helping people overcome obstacles brought on by loss of sight to regain their independence. Each participant’s transformation is special.

Assistive Technology Lab

The Envision Dallas Assistive Technology Lab offers one-on-one courses and training for people who are visually impaired to learn or enhance their skills with computers and other electronic devices—regardless of their ability to pay. Our training helps individuals maintain their independence, continue their education, find and keep long-term professional positions and develop the computer skills needed to stay connected to the community—improving their quality of life.

Orientation and Mobility Training

Utilizing public transportation. Walking through a grocery store. Cooking meals in home kitchens. Individuals who are blind or low vision can participate in these activities of daily living and navigate home and public environments safely and freely with orientation and mobility services. A certified orientation and mobility specialist at Envision Dallas is available to help people make the most of any remaining vision with white cane or guide dog training and instruction on learning to recognize environmental clues and using compass directions and GPS systems.
