Visually Impaired Preschool Services Indiana will Thursday celebrate the opening of the Simon and Estelle Knoble Family Resource Center near downtown Indianapolis. The nonprofit says the center will be the first physical space in the state for children ages birth to three with visual impairments.

The nonprofit, which provides services for children who are blind or visually impaired, says the center will serve as a hub for parents to receive resources and programming, and allow for on-site therapy.

The center is located on the first floor of the Line Lofts, an affordable multifamily housing development for low-income seniors and adults with visual impairments.

The organization says the center will ultimately allow it to expand its services and serve more children with vision loss.

The nonprofit is planning to hold a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday to mark the opening.
