Blindside Fresno: Valley Center for the Blind

Recently Ken Warkingtin, Executive Director of Valley Center for the  Blind came to the Blindside Fresno studio to talk about the center and its work over recent years and it's possible future plans.

Ken was made aware of the blind world, when his daughter was involved in a major road traffic accident. She was thrown through the back window of a car her face hitting the glass of the window and her eyes lacerated by the impact.

He has been director of the center in Fresno, California for several years and has seen its expansion in recent times from a social meeting place to include training in independent living skills and training in the use of adaptive technology.
