Welcome to the Edith Bishel Center

! Important Announcement!

With heavy hearts, we formally announce the closure of the Edith Bishel Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired in August 2024. Due to ongoing factors, we are no longer able to keep our doors open.

We are honored to have served, for nearly 30 years, the blind and visually impaired of southeastern Washington and northeastern Oregon. We have shared many days of joy and sorrow with those whose lives have been touched by vision loss. From the sorrow and grief of first learning about the loss to the joy of finding something that helped make their lives more independent and enjoyable. We thank you for the all those opportunities through the years.

We will be hosting a Closing drop-in event on August 9, 2024 at the Richland Round Table 1769 Leslie Road, 12 noon to 3 pm. Pizza and soft drinks will be served. Please stop by and share your memories of years past. Any of our past board members, employees, volunteers, donors and clients are encouraged to attend and say good-bye.
