Mission Statement
The Mission of Vision Resources of Central Pennsylvania is to support and promote the interests of people who are blind, visually impaired and otherwise disabled, and to provide blindness prevention services.
Vision Statement
Vision Resources of Central Pennsylvania is to be the premiere resource for blindness prevention services, and to maximize opportunities for individuals who are blind and visually impaired to maintain independence.
If you drove by Vision Resources in the past week, you may noticed a new addition in the parking lot. We have partnered with Community Aid and placed a donation box on our property to collect clothing and household items for their mission. Keep this in mind, clean out your closets and let's fill the bin, we all benefit!


Vision Resources of Central Pennsylvania is proud of the fact that our Business Services division generates about 80% of the annual revenue necessary to fulfill our mission to the blind and visually impaired throughout Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin and Perry counties. Vision Resources is equally proud that our businesses provide employment and job training to individuals with disabilities, and we are able to compensate them at levels beginning at minimum wage. Together we are working to raise the quality of life for everyone in our region.

Evening in the Shadows

Sponsored by PinnacleHeath System

Thursday, November 13, 2014 at the Clarion Hotel & Conference Center Harrisburg West

Evening in the Shadows is a unique event in which guests, wearing adjustable lightweight blindfolds, are served a five-course meal paired with fine wines while enjoying live entertainment. The menu is not disclosed until after dessert when the guests meet the chef, winemaker and entertainer.  This awareness event offers participants the experience of dining through the eyes and senses of someone who is visually impaired. Each year, the venue, chef and winemaker are all changed in order to keep the event fresh. All proceeds directly benefit Vision Resources of Central Pennsylvania.


Kim, who attended last year, sent the following remarks…

“What an absolutely wonderful event!!  I truly think this may have been the best fundraising event I have ever gone to!!!  It was wonderfully unique, very classy and the only fundraiser that I have ever been to that has put me in the shoes of the people we are raising money to support!!


For information on sponsoring or attending Evening in the Shadows, please contact Cheryl Cuddy, Community Relations and Special Events Manager, at or 717-238-2531 x 232 or purchase tickets for the event online.
