How does HJAHC’s partnership with Vision to Learn work?
Vision To Learn mobile clinics eliminate barriers to access by bringing eye care and glasses right to students in Trenton Public Schools. HJAHC and Vision to Learn will work with partners in the Trenton Public School District to pre-screen students for vision problems, offer mobile clinic vision exams, and dispense glasses to all students who need them, free of charge. Students can also get their lost or broken glasses replaced free of charge! Scores and grades of children who receive glasses from Vision To Learn improve by almost 8% on average, according to UCLA researchers.

What is the impact of my donation for GivingTuesday?
100% of your donation will directly fund our partnership with Vision to Learn to provide free vision screenings and eyeglasses for children in Trenton. When we reach our goal, we will be able to screen 12,000 students in Trenton Public Schools and provide eyeglasses to all who need them, an estimated 80%!
