The Center of the Blind Needs You!

If you’ve ever thought of finding a meaningful way to serve your community, the South East CT Community Center of the Blind would like to talk to you. We are looking for volunteers with a variety of interests, from helping with crafts to assisting in the office and running errands. We Really Need Drivers! If you can provide transportation to center activities and meetings, as well as doctors’ appointments and shopping, give the office a call. Help out when your schedule allows and discover the satisfaction of helping where it’s most needed. Transportation is often described as the biggest difficulty for people who can’t see to drive themselves. Paratransit and public transportation are not always options, particularly outside of their operating hours or to and from locations not situated near bus routes. Many of our long-time drivers prefer not to drive at night or like to winter in Florida.

As a Center volunteer, you will meet interesting people and your time will be immensely appreciated. (Note that volunteer drivers will be subject to a background check).
