Why You Should Give

Saavi relies on the generosity of our community partners and valued individual and family donors who offer financial support throughout the year. We are incredibly grateful for their kindness and belief in our mission. This financial support allows us to serve children and seniors so that they too can live the lives they choose.

Ronald Boyd

“I am a 60 year old retired manager of a sterile processing department. I’ve been in Arizona for 5 years. I’ve been at Saavi Services for the Blind in the Comprehensive Day Program for 7 months. My ultimate job goal is to have a food truck of my own. I’ve worked on food trucks before with my friends and I have decided to buy one. In order for me to achieve those goals I figured I should go through the CDP Program along with Saavi. I’m at Saavi to learn the skills I need to sustain a business. My own business. That’s why I’m here and I’m on my way, I hope, to achieving my goals.”

What You Gain at Saavi







Why it Matters

Blindness happens differently for everyone:
sometimes it occurs early in life. Sometimes it happens gradually over time. Sometimes it happens quickly and unexpectedly. Blindness can develop anytime, anywhere, to anyone.

When it does, Saavi Services for the Blind is there! Through our services, our students gain the confidence and non-visual skills that allow them to live independently, return to the work force, pursue secondary education or begin the path towards a new career. Our training empowers our students to strive for more and helps them realize their own potential so that they internalize that it is not what you can see…

It is what you can do!
