"Thanks to BCBC, students who are blind or low vision have participated in a Boston based after school program. Thanks to your support, students have participated in theater classes and created skits for their end of year performance; attended cooking classes and made pizza, brownies, salads and pasta dishes; trained for road races and completed several 5k races; attended career exploration classes and gotten their first work experiences." - Cheryl Cumings

“As a person who is totally blind, I found few opportunities to be alone in nature. That is, until Mass Audubon came along. With the creation of their universally accessible All Persons rope-guided trails, I can be alone and experience nature in an entirely new way.” - Jerry Berrier, Access Technology Consultant

Our programs have been enriched by their support which allows blind children to experience activities traditionally enjoyed by sighted children. We have been able to offer both indoor and outdoor experiences that expose the blind “campers” to a world of exploration through unique experiences." - John Oliveira, President
