Why should you come to the Blind Community Center?

Since 1949, the Mission of the Blind Community Center has been: To enrich the lives of blind and visually impaired adults preparing them for a normal, active life in a society that is principally sighted by encouraging independence.

The Blind Community Center offers social, recreation, and educational activities to promote independence and self-reliance for the blind and visually impaired. Our Balboa Park facility provides an environment for personal growth, social integration and interaction, and the development of individual skills and talents. Our free lunch program makes it possible for participants to attend Blind Community Center classes without skipping a needed meal.

The Blind Community Center gives blind and visually disabled people in our community a place to go every day. BCC participants are able to socialize with their peers, make crafts, play games and have a free lunch every day. Social activities help people stay healthy and motivated to live a better life

Have fun at the Blind Community Center, visit with friends, and make new friends. Play Bingo, learn to craft or attend a ceramics class. Play Cribbage, join our writing class or get some exercise. Enjoy a free lunch Monday though Friday.
