NewView Oklahoma is thankful for the support of many community partners who help create opportunities for blind and visually impaired Oklahomans to reach their maximum level of independence!
Oklahoma Riversport: OKC Boathouse Foundation
In 2009, an adaptive rowing program was created for clients and employees of NewView Oklahoma, with the help of the OKC Boathouse Foundation. The Chesapeake Boathouse provided three adaptive rowing machines and experienced rowers offered training and expertise.
A competitive rowing program utilizing dragon boats has been formed to allow more people with vision impairments to experience the fun and healthy benefits of rowing. Click here to learn more about our dragon boating team!

Creative Visions was established in partnership with the Oklahoma City Museum of Art as a program designed to make art education available to blind and visually impaired adults and youth. Art classes run year-round focused on art mediums including clay and acrylic.
This program allows individuals to not only learn about artwork but to create their own. By creating classes that work with audio and tactile learning, a field known for being mostly visual, is now accessible for blind and visually impaired Oklahomans. Visit our Creative Visions page to learn more!
