Institute for Families Mission

Families in crisis need information, and they usually have no idea where to find it. We provide guidance through a resource and referral network available to families and professionals internationally. Institute for Families refers parents and physicians to organizations specializing in meeting the needs of children with specific visual problems. Our staff can help locate appropriate infant care programs, school settings, learning aids, and much more. In addition, we write and publish journal articles, booklets, and newsletters for families and health care professionals. These tools offer concrete suggestions and coping strategies. Parents often share their experiences and strength with each other through our publications. We have also created a series of professionally produced DVD’s that deal with issues affecting the families of the visually impaired and the health care workers who assist them.
