Spring 2021 

THANK YOU to all of our wonderful donors and volunteers! YOU make it possible for us to make a difference in the lives of people with visual impairments. 

– Chad Thomas, Executive Director 

SUCCESS STORY 

At CCABVI, we help people who are blind or vision-impaired  so they can thrive. Let me tell you about… 

LAUREN MAZZOTTA!

Lauren has worked for about 3 years in our textile workshop.  Her positive attitude brightens our day.  She strives to grow personally and professionally, in spite of being born with visual and developmental disabilities.  At CCABVI, Lauren is gaining front office skills.  We’ve helped her apply to some colleges.  She’s been accepted into at least one so far!  Lauren is a proud graduate of North Penn High School.  She has a training certificate from Commonwealth Technical Institute.  Lauren was quoted in a recent article about the Military Resale Program. You can find it in the Winter 2021 edition of Opportunity Magazine online at https://www.nib.org/about/media/opportunity magazine/
