An initiative of the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque
Vision To Learn
Uncorrected vision affects as many as 20,000 children in Iowa.
A disproportionate number are minorities and come from low-income families. Barriers like access and cost prevent children from getting the vision care they need. Vision To Learn breaks down those barriers by bringing a mobile clinic to schools and providing eye exams and glasses at no cost.

Supporting Vision Health
As parents who understand the struggles of vision health first-hand, Steve and Elaine Kahler decided to support Vision To Learn by establishing a new fund with our affiliate the Community Foundation of Jackson County.
There are no upcoming events at this time.
"Kids need to see clearly every day — it makes a huge difference with their learning."
Vision To Learn has supported thousands of children across Iowa since launching in Dubuque.
