The Bucks County Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (BCABVI) is an independent non-profit organization serving the residents of Bucks County. Their vision is rich, vibrant and independent lives for all people who are blind or visually impaired.
They realize their vision applies to every potential client in a unique way. For this reason, BCABVI offers a range of services that can be customized for each specific situation. Whether it is short-term intervention or long-term support, BCABVI can offer solutions appropriate for each person’s individual needs.
BCABVI operates two Low Vision Clinics, one in Newtown and a second in Telford, PA where patients can receive specialized Low Vision Evaluations, Assistive Technology and Low Vision Aids. In their facility located at 400 Freedom Drive in Newtown, clients can participate in Support Groups for Vision Loss, Life Skills Trainings and Social/Recreational Activities. Transportation is available. Community based services include in-home supports, free vision screenings for children and adults and educational presentations.
Most services are offered at no charge and no one is turned away based on an inability to pay. To offset the cost of these valuable services, BCABVI operates a thriving thrift shop located at 400 Freedom Drive in Newtown.
The Thrift Shop at BCABVI is not your typical thrift store. Donations of tax-deductible treasures become part of a boutique of gently used, high-quality items. One hundred percent of all proceeds from sales are used to support the services and programs of the association.
BCABVI also hosts a variety of events to raise needed funds. The Third Annual Fashion Show is scheduled for Sunday, May 18th, at the Doylestown Country Club. This Casablanca inspired event features a luxurious silent auction and high end/vintage fashion. Sponsorship opportunities are now available.
