The nonprofit foundation was created following a horrific Haverhill attack in 2021 that left a woman with complete loss of vision in both eyes. Zachary Sindoni, whose mother-in-law was one of the attack victims, told Haverhill city councilors last year he learned agencies for the blind tend to focus on persons blind from birth or slowly losing their sight and not so much on those who are blinded overnight due to trauma. The foundation was created to help fill in that gap.
