iCanConnect is a national program with local contacts to help people stay connected with friends, family, their community, and the world. iCanConnect provides free equipment and training to people with both significant vision and hearing loss who meet disability and income guidelines.

In Virginia, Perkins School for the Blind is responsible for iCanConnect, and works with the Virginia Department for the Blind and Vision Impaired (DBVI) and others to provide in-state service. Contact Elizabeth Spiers with questions about applying in Virginia, and download an application.
