What did they have to say?

Austin assisted us with an internal tool, that we will also post on our website and share with stakeholders. The title of the document is Accessibility Toolkit and it is designed to help people create documents that are accessible to those who are blind and visually impaired. Austin brought a wealth of knowledge from her own background and added extremely helpful content to the finished product. She is skilled and a delight to work with as a volunteer. I highly recommend Austin for any project you may have, and we will be reaching out to her for future projects.

I would enthusiastically recommend partnership with The Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired to any Catchafire volunteer! My correspondent with Vista Center, Alice Turner, was the consummate professional -- as personable as she is thorough, Alice made my first Catchafire volunteering experience a rewarding one. My thanks to you, Alice, for your clear, prompt communication, boundless expertise, and valuable guidance. It was a pleasure and an honor to serve Vista Center!
