The North Country Association for the Visually Impaired can help. We provide free services to those who are blind, legally blind and visually impaired in Clinton, Essex, Franklin and St. Lawrence counties.

Our staff goes into your home, workplace or school to provide education, training and the skills needed to attain and maintain independence. 

For the elderly, basic, everyday living skills can mean the difference between staying in their own home and being placed in a nursing home. For children, these skills mean a better education, a sense of security at school and a brighter future.

On Aug. 2, the association will be holding its 10th-annual Golf for Sight Tournament and Fundraiser at Harmony Golf Club in Port Kent. The proceeds from this event allow us to continue vital services to the visually impaired in our area. You can support our mission by sponsoring the tournament, putting in a team, giving an item for raffles or by simply donating to NCAVI. 

For more information, please visit our website, www.ncavi.org or contact jodincavi@gmail.com, call 562-2330 or write NCAVI, 22 U.S. Oval, Suite B-15 Plattsburgh, NY 12903.
