And the Winning Program Is . . .

Congratulations, Dallas Services! At its Annual Meeting on November 15, the Community Council of Greater Dallas presented the 2011 Award for Excellence in Human Service Programming to the agency’s Vision for Children initiative.

Since the 1970s, Vision for Children has worked with area school districts, charter and private schools to help children from low-income families by providing vision services they cannot otherwise afford.

Through its Low Vision Clinic, and with the dedicated partnership of area Lions Clubs and the Lions Sight and Tissue Foundation, Vision for Children provides services to 3,000 children each year through optometric exams/glasses, low vision examinations and devices and a repair/replacement program. Thomas Turnage, Ph.D., executive director, accepted the award.
