Helping Blind Texans to increase their freedom, mobility and independence

Freedom, Mobility and Independence

"Walking with a guide dog is the purest form of joy I’ve ever experienced. For someone who is blind, the willing heart and bright eyes of a guide dog represent the freedom to travel your life’s path."

- Sandy Merrill, CEO

Serving Texas

"With Bell at my side, people aren’t afraid to approach me anymore – before, they hesitated. It shows how wonderful a dog like Bell can help lower barriers. She has helped erase stereotypes about people with visual impairments."

- Amanda, Graduate
