Penrickton Center for Blind Children

For the past few years, we have contributed to the Penrickton Center for Blind Children. The Penrickton Center was established in 1952 as a unique, private, non-profit agency, providing five-day residential daycare, and consultation/evaluation services to blind, multi-disabled children ages one through twelve. Each program is individually designed to promote independence in all aspects of daily living. The Penrickton Center utilizes its experience and expertise to train and serve families, children and professionals through support services, education, and advocacy.

For more information, please visit the Penrickton website.
