About Us

Volunteers of Vacaville (VOV) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based out of Vacaville, California. VOV’s board and volunteer base is comprised of local Lion’s Club members, teachers for the blind, and generous community members united for the cause of aiding the sight impaired community worldwide.

The Blind Project was created by VOV in 1960, allowing local incarcerated inmates from California Medical Facility the opportunity to learn the trade of Braille transcription and Brailler repair, among other important job skills. Today, this project is still growing and recognized worldwide as a center of hope for its workers and the blind community.
