The Envision the Possibilities capital campaign will support renovations of our new 210,000 square-foot facility which is centrally located in Farmers Branch in an area that has far greater accessibility to our clients and employees who are blind or visually impaired that our current leased facilities.
Doing so enables Envision Dallas to make an impact for individuals who are BVI by:
Providing space, equipment and technology to accommodate long-term growth plans and create 200 new jobs for people who are blind or visually impaired .
Opening the Cathy G. Hudson Envision Child Development Center that will offer comprehensive and inclusive learning experiences and support for children who are BVI, sighted children and their families.
Implementing the Envision Dallas William L. Hudson BVI Workforce Innovation Center that helps ready individuals who are blind or visually impaired for knowledge-based jobs.
Expanding the Gigi and Carl Allen Family Rehabilitation Center serving all ages with vital therapy, training and support.
Launching a variety of life-changing programs including college readiness and a vibrant art program for all ages to provide support, community and connections.
Conducting groundbreaking research at the Envision Research Institute with the goal of removing the barriers for people with blindness or low vision.
The programs and services provided by Envision Dallas can mean the difference between unemployment and meaningful work; between assisted living and living independently; between dropping out of school and excelling in college; between a sense of isolation and a sense of belonging.
All of this ensures that Envision Dallas is able to meet the needs of the blind or visually impaired community in North Texas from birth through career and beyond.
