After many, many months of waiting, I was finally interviewed last week by Michexa Belizaire. Michexa was not only extremely knowledgeable about VISIONS services but was also most patient and thorough in explaining their benefits to a potential recipient. How fortunate you are to have such an outstanding employee!

Sincerely yours,

Nan C.

I just wanted to take the time to thank you again for all you do. My family, especially my dad is grateful for you and a place like VISIONS. We received the air conditioner and it's working wonders in this heatwave. My dad misses you all at VISIONS. He can't wait to get back. He gets so bored at home. Enjoy your day!!

Best,

Jackie

I was delighted to receive a hard copy of this amazing book from a friend.  My husband of 40 years, who was profoundly myopic from birth and developed a form of macular degeneration specific to extreme myopia, loved to cook.  What a great gift this is, not just for the blind or sight challenged, but for anyone who loves to cook.  Even if you don’t, it offers great options in all categories for entertaining or simply preparing a delicious family meal.

The recipes are beautifully laid out in a uniform and attractive format - love that - and the ingredients clearly defined not just in quantity but with any additional explanation needed for the not-so-experienced.  All instructions are clear and the ingredients can be found easily.  How many of us have cookbooks on our shelves that we will never use because they are too complicated or contain unheard of ingredients?  Away with them!

This is an ideal cookbook for all ages.  At a not so young age it has given me some fresh ideas and got me out of a rut and experimenting anew.

Thank you for this awesome book.

My name is Sophie, I am a client in the Caregivers program. I want to tell you about my social worker who I have, her name is Avian Perez. When I get the call out of the blue from your agency, she was very warm and sincere with me. She listened to my needs, and always promised to help me, and call me back. She told me she was new to the agency, and that she was in school, but she didn’t let that stop her from working so hard for me. I have worked with many people in social services, and I must say she is a true gem. She is so caring, and I feel she has made such an impact on my life. She has helped me get items to use around my home to be safe and got me an aide to take me shopping. She is more than an intern; she has always taken the time to treat me like a human and make me feel so understood. For her it may be a job, but to me I see her as a blessing. I am writing this because she told me her time is coming to an end and she will be leaving VISIONS soon, I was very upset to hear that as I enjoy working with her, as I am sure many are. I want to tell VISIONS they need more people like Avian, and I hope this can get into the hands of someone who can make this happen for her and make her a permanent social worker in VISIONS.

Warm regards,
Sophie D.

Dear Mr. Hixson,

I'm writing this letter to thank you for reaching out to me regarding my son’s nomination by Iman Hanafi for a donation from Sons and Daughters of Italy of $750.00. I appreciate Kathy and you coming out to meet my son and to present us with the gift cards. I am grateful for this donation from the bottom of my heart as it will help to get my son toys, clothes, books and other things that he needs to continue to progress in his development.

Thanks again for the donation from the Sons and Daughters of Italy as it will help

my son tremendously with his needs.

Sincerely,
Wanda A.
