Programs That Make A Difference
Arizona Blind & Deaf Children’s Foundation is committed to making a difference in the lives of blind and deaf children. To do
this, we’ve focused on four primary program areas that complement standard academic education, adding those all-important experiences
which shape the way our young people understand the world. And while many of the programs we support are through our bi-annual grant-making,
we also commit to a select number of flagship programs annually.
Our program areas include:
•Art for Life - Comprehensive arts programs aimed at cultural enrichment, while providing experience in important life and communication
skills, such as our Art Shed program.
• Fit for Life - Sports and recreation programs to help blind and deaf youth reach their physical potential, and ensuring healthy,
active lives. Fit for Life flagship programs are Camp Abilities and Above and Beyond Outdoor Education program.
•Literacy for Life - Providing access to adaptive communication tools and ways of accessing information, support for adult and/or
peer mentorship in literacy. We proudly contribute to the Shared Reading Project as a flagship program.
•Success for Life - Independent living skills, financial literacy, technology and career technology programs that allow youth to work
toward their highest potential autonomy. Read about Steppin’ Out, and Space Camp.
