SAAVI Services for the Blind specializes in non-visual training for Adults, young adults, teens and children across Arizona who are blind or have low vision. It is our motto and belief to expect more of our students. High expectations mean high achievements for program participants. We expect more of our students, and in turn they set high expectations for themselves.  Thus, achieving more and becoming more.

Expect More! Achieve More! Become More!



It’s not what you can see, it’s what you can do!


At SAAVI services for the Blind, we are remaining strong and standing together ensuring that our blind community is safe, healthy and well. We have organized outreach to contact individuals within the blind community in an effort to administer to their needs.

If you or someone you know is in need of valuable attentiveness, or if you would like to be an active participant in this endeavor, do not hesitate to reach out to us. You can email rtorres@saavi.us or call 520 829-7376. This is a statewide effort. Please help us make a difference.

Dear friends, supporters and colleagues:


Saavi Services for the Blind takes very seriously the health and safety of students, staff and visitors. In order to play our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19, we are announcing that all in-person center training is temporarily on hold. We will be moving to virtual training and are swiftly working to implement this. Classes, tutoring, and more will be offered via computer or over the phone. This comes as Arizona Governor Doug Ducey is ordering all Arizona public schools to close and many other public places are following. We are closely monitoring COVID-19 in Arizona and continue to follow all advice and protocol. We are working very hard on informing everyone of the best practices and communicating our contingency plans clearly with our staff, students and partners. We will continue to stay alert to the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 in Arizona and will most certainly continue to take this matter very seriously.


We strongly encourage everyone to take all necessary steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19, by following CDC guidelines. This includes washing hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. For more information on how to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, click here for the CDC’s website.


We will continue to keep you updated as this situation moves along.
