About The Center

In 1988, the founders of The Edith Bishel  Center realized that there were no adequate  services in the region being offered to people who are blind and visually impaired. This growing, at-risk population was left with few or no resources to help them better function in their daily lives.

Founded in 1988 and officially incorporated in 1994, the center has been serving our community for 28 years.  The land and funds for the center were donated by Edith L. Bishel, a prominent Kennewick resident for many years.
