Because we are visually impaired ourselves, we understand how large in area Houston is and that there are many people from across our great city who are visually impaired. Our goal when starting HAVIN was to try to make it a little smaller for us, at least once a year, for those of us who are visually impaired. To do this, we bring together the various support groups and nonprofit organizations that serve the visually impaired community and make up HAVIN to host at least one event a year, the annual Insight Expo. While its not practical to come to each of our group’s individual meetings, it is possible for us to come together for that one day a year and bring unity to our community. There are links to our “About Us” page above, and “Our Groups,” if you want to find out about our history, or to contact one of the groups that comprise HAVIN.
Please take the time to explore our web site and learn more about our organization. There is a menu above which allows you to find support groups or other organizations that serve our community, and we have contact information so that you can get in touch with somebody near you.
HAVIN is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization comprised of various volunteer groups from across Houston that serve the information, resource, and support needs of the visually impaired. Our vision is to educate, provide peer support, and unify the visually impaired community in the Greater Houston area.
