Children's Services - Southern California

Infant & Early Childhood Program

Junior Blind's Infant & Early Childhood Program provides a wide range of services for children with visual impairments and other disabilities, from birth to age 6. Specializing in early intervention, this program provides in-home services to infants, from birth to age 3, to help increase visual functioning, sensory awareness and communication skills, as well as improve physical, cognitive and emotional development. For children ages 3-6, this program continues to provide parents with essential skills and support to become successful advocates for their child's education and care.


Children’s Residential Program

Welcome to Junior Blind's new Children's Residential Program (CRP). In response to the changing needs of our residents and community partners, Junior Blind's CRP program has evolved. Children and youth previously residing at the CRP have now moved into group homes in the community surrounding Junior Blind, where they continue to enjoy the warm, secure home environment for which we are well-known, but in a more individualized setting.


Special Education School

Junior Blind's Special Education School (SES) offers children and youth, ages 3-21, who are blind, visually impaired and have multiple disabilities a safe and positive environment for learning and growth. Teachers work with students to develop self-esteem and achieve their highest level of independence.


After School Enrichment Program

Integrating children who are blind with those who are sighted, Junior Blind's After School Enrichment Program provides a safe, fun and educational environment for children to learn the importance of physical activity and healthy nutrition while expanding their horizons.


Children's Group Homes

Junior Blind's Children's Group Homes provide quality round-the-clock care to children and youth, ages 5 to 21, with moderate, severe or profound disabilities—offering them a warm, loving home setting designed to help them reach their highest levels of independence.


REACH Mentoring Program

Realizing Education and Career Hopes (REACH) is Junior Blind's early outreach program for middle and high school students who are blind or low vision and interested in pursuing careers and/or higher education.


Mental Health Services

Junior Blind's Mental Health Services are dedicated to nurturing the mental health of children and youth with histories of maltreatment, such as abuse or neglect, and those impacted by the foster care system—especially those who are medically fragile, multi-disabled or chronically ill. Through our specialized emotional and behavioral services, we help these children cope with the traumatic experiences and unstable environments causing them to be removed from their families or putting them at-risk of removal.
