A Statement Regarding Diversity and Inclusion
Even though diversity and inclusion are and always have been integral parts of the core Blind Beginnings values, we do of course recognize that there is always room for us to grow, listen, learn and participate in support of anti-racism. For this reason, we have formed a Diversity Committee that consists of board and staff members in order for us to take meaningful action in support of Black Lives Matter and other organizations that work against systemic racism against Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC).
Please Note Office Hour Changes Due to COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about many changes to our daily lives, and to the operations, and services and programs of our organization.
The Blind Beginnings office remains closed save for appointments for the duration of the summer, but all our staff are still working and continue to be available by phone or email.
