Miracle Field

October 12, 2017

That’s what Challenger Miracle Field of Greater Rochester is all about. What started as a simple idea – giving kids and adults with disabilities the opportunity to play America’s favorite pastime – has grown into a dream of building a field and play space like no other in our community.

The Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ABVI), founded in 1911, is a premiere provider of vision rehabilitation services to people who are blind or visually impaired throughout the Greater Rochester, Finger Lakes, and Southern Tier areas of New York.

As part of its mission-focused work, ABVI empowers people with vision loss to engage in fulfilling careers by offering a variety of entrepreneurial businesses, including a state-of-the-art contact center, and manufacturing and fulfillment services.

At ABVI, we believe that even though everyone experiences vision loss differently, an individual can be self-sufficient and contribute to his or her family and community after a diagnosis of significant visual impairment or blindness.

We work to make this belief a reality for the people we serve in two ways:

  • Our vision rehabilitation services are designed from a person-centered approach to assist people in adapting everyday activities.

  • We provide the opportunity through training and skill development to engage in meaningful work.
