Candle in the Window

Themed issue-oriented workshops, swimming, hiking, socializing – all this and more happens every August at this special conference for blind and visually impaired adults in Louisville, Kentucky. A wonderful opportunity for people with vision loss.

Candle in the Window is a small nonprofit organization dedicated to building individual skills and a sense of community among blind and visually impaired people. For 19 years Candle has been welcoming people with low vision from throughout the nation and from all walks of life to its annual conference. Meals, conference materials, and transportation to and from the Louisville International Airport are generally included. A payment plan and a limited number of scholarships are available.
