About VRC

Vision Resource Center of Berks County is a 501 (c) 3, non-profit social service agency that was founded in 1929 by the Reading Lions Club.  We have been providing services proudly for over 85 years and our  agency focuses on the prevention of  blindness and making it possible for visually impaired Berks County residents to lead independent and productive lives within their community.  The agency serves over 600 blind and visually impaired Berks County residents.


Our Vision is to provide an organization to help create an environment in Berks County in which all people who are blind or visually impaired can be a part of their communities with equal opportunities to lead fulfilling lives.

Our Mission is to strive to prevent blindness and visual impairment, and to advocate and provide quality education, support services, and rehabilitation to enrich the lives of blind and visually impaired persons and their caregivers.
