The mission of Hadley is to create personalized learning opportunities that empower adults with vision loss or blindness to thrive - at home, at work, and in their communities.
Founded in 1920 by William Hadley, an educator who lost his eyesight later in life, Hadley offers practical help, connection and support free of charge to anyone with a visual impairment, their families and professionals supporting them. Since July 2020, more than 9,000 learners have accessed 43,000 workshops. The program currently has over a 70% completion rate and has scored over 95% in satisfaction ratings. Hadley provides online, large print, braille and audio media, reaching all 50 states and 100 countries. And more people learn braille from Hadley than from any other organization worldwide.
Hadley's help conveniently meets learners where they are. Free of wait lists. Free of office visits. Free of charge.
