Florida Outreach Center for the Blind, Inc. Receives Grant from the Quantum Foundation

Florida Outreach Center for the Blind, Inc. has announced it is the recipient of a $30,00 grant from the Quantum Foundation.

Palm Beach, FL, June 22, 2017 --(PR.com)-- Florida Outreach Center for the Blind, Inc. of Palm Springs, Florida, has announced that it is the recipient of a $30,000 grant from the Quantum Foundation. Quantum Foundation is the largest Palm Beach County based health funder that supports local communities. This grant will be used to provide health education for visually impaired seniors in Palm Beach County.

Florida Outreach Center for the Blind, Inc. was established in 2003 by Carolyn Lapp, with the mission to develop and administer programs that will integrate blind and visually-impaired persons into the social, economic, and spiritual lives of their community.

Over 18,000 seniors in Palm Beach County are visually impaired, many of whom have lost their vision later in life due to eye conditions such as age related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma. These individuals have never received the training required to adapt to their vision loss.

The Quantum Foundation grant will provide the resources needed to offer seniors training and support in the areas of independent living, mobility, Braille, computers, and other assistive technology. In addition, seniors will benefit from the support, resources and social opportunities offered by the Center. These skills will allow blind and visually impaired seniors to maintain their independence, health, safety and improve their quality of life.
