The Blind Relief Fund seeks to support the effort of legally blind residents of the Philadelphia area to live independently in their own homes despite their disadvantaged circumstances.
As we know from first hand experience, the blind find ways to cope with even the most challenging living conditions because the alternative of moving to another location is rarely an option. Learning the intricacies of a new home and neighborhood is daunting to an elderly blind adult. Occasionally when a client’s safety or financial survival is at risk The Blind Relief Fund will assist a client to move because our goal is to support independent living.
