Our Story

This year is Visually Impaired Preschool Services' (VIPS) 35th anniversary. Founded in 1985 by a group of parents and volunteers who saw a need to improve educational and developmental intervention services to children with blindness and low vision in Louisville, Kentucky, VIPS began with $10,000 grants from Metro United Way and WHAS Crusade for Children and one employee. VIPS grew from serving eight families that year to serving over 700 children from birth to five years old in 2019. With growing demand of its services, VIPS has established offices in Central Kentucky and Indianapolis and opened a preschool in Louisville--the first of its kind in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Today, VIPS continues to be the first and only nonprofit agency in Kentucky and Indiana providing vision-specific services to this population of children.
