Lilac Services for the Blind believes those who are living with blindness or low vision have the right to live as independently as they choose.
As our primary service, the Independent Living Program provides in-home training, which includes alternative communication methods, home management, activities of daily living, and more. Both on-site and in-home training is available. Another significant service is our adaptive computer lab. Within the lab, participants learn how to use adaptive software and other adaptive computer products.
Other important services include our expanding Braille transcription services and Braille library, a low-vision department that includes adaptive aid demonstrations, low-vision assessments, and a magnifier program. Lilac also hosts support groups. Please see the activities page for meeting details. In addition, we provide information and referral services within the community. We continually update our services in order to meet the needs and goals of our blind and low-vision participants.
