On December 21, 2020, the Licking County Aging Program (LCAP) Board of Directors voted to approve a merger with the Licking County Center for the Visually Impaired (CVI). The Licking County Aging Program has officially taken over operation of CVI within the walls of Heritage Hall.
CVI has been operating out of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church for over 30 years. Their ongoing mission has been to help pay for eye exams and eye glasses as well as provide Low Vision Aids such as closed circuit televisions (CCTV’s) and other devices that help people with visual impairments.
This program will be a great addition to the lineup of services the Licking County Aging Program has to offer. Even though CVI has been acquired by LCAP, this new department will continue serving all individuals from birth to death, with a majority of their clients being 60+.
To facilitate the merger, longtime employees of CVI, Cheryl and Fred Lentz, are becoming a part of the LCAP team. The Center for Visual Impairments is also now known as the Center for Visual Improvement to better describe their mission.
If you or a loved one are in need of eye exams and visual aids, you may visit www.lcap.org or contact the Center for Visual Improvement at (740) 345-0821 ext. 235.
