One-on-One Services

Current clients of CABVI may request the services of a one-on-one volunteer. Our coordinator will try to match the interests and geographic locations of clients and volunteers, and assignments can be made on a once a week or once a month basis with the same volunteer. Volunteers are available to assist in a variety of ways, including:

  • Reading mail
  • Writing checks and filling out forms
  • Helping to label groceries and other items

Talking Books Service

Talking Books is a service of the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS), a branch of the Library of Congress. The service allows people who are visually impaired to listen to books and magazines recorded by professional narrators on a specially designed Talking Book Machine. CABVI partners with NLS to offer this service for free to individuals who have low vision, blindness, a physical disability, or other disabilities that make it difficult to read regular print. Facilities serving these individuals, such as retirement communities, nursing facilities and schools may also apply.
