About Us

Heritage for the Blind

Heritage for the Blind's mission is multi-faceted. It includes the preservation of vision, through the promotion of eye health awareness with public service announcements, media campaigns and materials for the visually impaired, as well as improving the health and economic security of individuals in need. Users can utilize our comprehensive, free online tool that connects older adults with Federal, State and City benefits they may qualify for. We also provide access to a vast database of charities that service the Blind and Visually impaired throughout the United States.

We encourage people to donate their cars in an effort to promote the auto recycling clean air project. The program is dedicated to accelerating the retirement of older, higher polluting vehicles and to promoting a shift to new, cleaner and more efficient alternatives.

We provide, free of charge, an array of large print and audio books. We offer novels, suspense, humor, Health, self-help, as well as consumer related publications to assist the visually impaired in getting answers to questions about consumer problems and government services.

We have also expanded services to provide mini libraries for the visually impaired residing in adult nursing facilities throughout the United States. Our mailing address is:
