Anchor Center for Blind Children is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing early intervention/education to blind and visually impaired children throughout the state of Colorado. Our staff of highly trained vision specialists, therapists and teachers foster the full potential of children who are blind by providing exemplary education, therapy and family support services.
The mission of Anchor Center for Blind Children is to teach visually impaired infants, young children and their families, providing hope and a nurturing environment where children reach their highest potential.
"Seeing Life Differently!"
Anchor Center for Blind Children was founded in 1982 by a librarian from the Colorado Library for the Blind, who saw a need for services for blind and visually impaired children, and the local Delta Gamma Alumnae chapter. The first group of children included four preschool students and six home bound infants. Today Anchor Center serves more than 400 children and families each year.
Anchor Center offers Infant, Toddler, Preschool, Home Visit, Family Support and Outreach Programs. We teach the children life skills such as mobility and pre-literacy and prepare them for kindergarten in the public school system.
