Camp Allen was founded in 1931 by the Boston Lions Club, later Boston Kiwanis in partnership with the Manchester Lions Club as a retreat for young girls who were blind.
M.I.C.E. (Multi-sensory Intervention through Consultation and Education) is a statewide program providing educational and developmental services to sensory impaired infants, ages birth to three years. The purpose of this program is to identify infants at risk for, or diagnosed with, a vision or hearing loss and to provide early intervention services. Blindness and deafness do not occur as frequently as other disabilities. Therefore, M.I.C.E. Program services are specifically designed to assist families and community agency personnel in learning how to care for and work with the unique abilities and needs of each child with vision and hearing loss.
For more than 100 years the Association’s mission has been “To advance the independence of persons who are blind and visually impaired.”
Our goal is to help people with vision loss continue to live safely and independently – at home, at work and in their community. The New Hampshire Association for the Blind offers a number of vision rehabilitation services that are individually tailored to your needs. Among these are vision rehabilitation therapy, orientation and mobility training, low vision services, education services for school aged children and counseling. Volunteers are also available for transportation and home visits.
