Increase the pool of qualified vision rehabilitation professionals providing comprehensive services statewide.
With over 2 million Floridians in need of vision rehabilitation— every day is an opportunity to create hope. In 2017 alone, Florida ASB nearly doubled state dollars for babies and children and made significant contributions to state revenue including federal matches for teens, working-age adults, and seniors with blindness. We continue the forward momentum through our organizational goals listed below.
