Vision & Values

Our Vision & Values

VisionServe Alliance leverages the collective talents and resources of the vision loss field to positively impact the quality of life of millions facing blindness and low vision.

Our Vision

VisionServe Alliance envisions a world where every person facing blindness and low vision has genuine access to all services they need to live safely, confidently, independently, and joyfully. For true access, these individuals must be:

  • Aware of all services that can benefit them
  • Have physical access to these services – overcoming transportation issues and other challenges and barriers
  • Receive the financial support necessary to take full advantage of these services

VisionServe Alliance leads a network of organizations and leaders in the vision loss field who work toward a common goal – through innovation, education, collaboration, policy, and advocacy – to improve the continuum of care and address the complex issues impacting the quality of life for people with blindness and low vision. Together, we provide unprecedented support and access for these individuals.

Our IDEAL Committee and DEIA Initiatives

VisionServe Alliance took the first steps to establish a DEIA Committee in February 2021 by soliciting volunteers from our member organizations to serve on this new committee being formed. The committee was established with volunteers from 16 VSA member organizations and committee meetings began in March 2021, continuing monthly for the rest of 2021.
