We are pleased to announce that as of January 2018, Junior Blind is now Wayfinder Family Services! Since 1953, wonderful friends like you have made it possible for us to respond to changing needs in our community. Your support has helped us expand our services to reach more people than ever before, from those who have vision loss or profound special needs to foster youth with serious medical conditions or trauma and their families.
Last year, we embarked on a journey to find a new name that better reflects our role in serving children, adults and families with varied challenges. We considered our history, listened to our constituents and assessed the needs of our community. As we celebrate our 65th anniversary, we are proud to become Wayfinder Family Services.
In Wayfinder Family Services, we found a name that signifies our important work in partnering with those we serve—both visually impaired and sighted—find their way to reaching new heights. Our new symbol shows three figures holding hands, representing how we’re in this together with those we serve and loyal friends like you!
Thank you for embarking on the next 65 years with us. Together, we are the Wayfinders!
