Claudia Tenney, a member of the United States House of Representatives from New York’s 22nd district, spoke about CABVI on the congressional floor on Wednesday, June 28. She recognized CABVI as a vital resource for individuals who are blind and visually impaired, spoke of her personal experience with the organization, and showed her support for the AbilityOne initiative.
Claudia Tenney states, “It was an honor to recognize the Central Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired – CABVI on the House Floor. Established in Utica in 1929, CABVI provides a wide range of opportunities for the blind and visually impaired, helping them to acquire job skills and training, good wages and benefits, and a greater independence and quality of life.
Their resources and services have improved the quality of life for so many in our region including my father who spent the last 7 years of his life legally blind and confined to a wheelchair. My family is forever grateful to them for their care and kindness.”
Thank you, Claudia, for your continued support!
