Dorin Fund helps aid people who are visually impaired
The George and Marion Dorin Fund for the Blind (Dorin Fund) has been established to help pay for two graduate student service internships at Clovernook Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired – a not-for-profit in North College Hill. The ultimate goal of the Dorin Fund is to help people who are blind and visually impaired improve their quality of life. “In our opinion, the lack of a sense of vision is the worst sense to be without, for you miss seeing the beauty of nature and our surroundings,” said George Dorin. “Through this internship, we are reaching out to help people who are blind have a better life.” Natalie Centers, a graduate occupational therapy student from Xavier University was selected as the first recipient of the Dorin Fund Internship. Natalie has been working in Adult Day Supports at Clovernook Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired since June 2013. Adult Day Supports provide daytime programming and activities for people who are visually impaired with additional disabilities. “My main objective has been to talk with participants in the program and share experiences,” said Natalie. She hopes to continue working with people with disabilities after she graduates in May. “The Dorin Fund Internship has been such a fantastic experience. I’ve been able to gain practical, hands-on experience that has impacted my life for the positive.” George and Marion Dorin established the fund through the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty.
