We are currently offering online workshops and classes and virtual sessions, while Braille Institute centers remain temporarily closed due to COVID-19. Once you register, you then participate by video or phone within the comfort and safety of your home. Like all of our programs and services, Braille’s remote service offerings are free of charge. Learn how Braille’s remote classes, workshops and services work, here.

“Braille Institute Santa Barbara Center is an invaluable resource in this community. Our staff and volunteers are committed to empowering and educating those living with vision loss so that they too can live a life without barriers.”
Our staff have gathered, and continue to research, helpful community resources and safe activities for our community of visually impaired during COVID19.
Lifestyle classes, activities and workshops help adults with sight loss build practical skills, regain independence, learn about the latest in medical development, and foster a sense of community. Individuals may sign up at any time.
This program for infants, children and teens, who are blind or visually impaired, creates opportunities to gain life experiences fostering confidence, self-esteem and independence, leading to higher education and employment.
