For over 120 years, Helen Keller Services for the Blind has helped people of all ages who are blind or visually impaired to develop independence and to participate actively and fully in their communities.
Our mission is to help individuals of all ages who are blind or visually impaired, and who may have additional disabilities, to develop independence and to participate actively in their communities, and to provide public education and blindness prevention programs.
Founded in 1893, Helen Keller Services for the Blind offers a wide range of services and programs for people of all ages who are blind or have vision impairments. Thousands of people in the New York metropolitan area and in Nassau and Suffolk Counties take advantage of these services every year.
Headquartered in Brooklyn, HKSB has additional rehabilitation sites in Hempstead and Huntington, Long Island. The agency also operates the Helen Keller National Center for Deaf-Blind Youths and Adults (www.hknc.org) in Sands Point, New York, with regional offices around the country.
