The Niagara Frontier Radio Reading Service is the only service in Western and Central New York State that enables people who are blind or have a print or visual disability to have access to audio broadcasts of local, state and national publications, news, books, and other printed information. This is tremendously important for a person’s ability to properly engage and contribute to our society. 

Although located in Buffalo, this agency serves the Rochester, NY area.

Wish List:
  • money and grant donations: We keep our expenses to a minimum but we are very dependent on donations and grants to maintain the studio, provide and sustain equipment, recruit and manage volunteers, afford reading materials, and deliver outreach information and literature for our listeners. Please consider a tax-deductible contribution so this can continue!   

Volunteers Needed:
  • Readers: The strength of our organization are our wonderful volunteer readers. They are dedicated, compassionate, and loyal. We don’t expect professionals. If you like to read, can spend one or two hours a week doing so, and love to help others, this might be for you. Our listeners describe their experience like sitting next to a friend that is reading to them. For many, it is the high point of their day. If you have access to the Internet and an ability to record (computer, laptop, smart phone, etc.), you are ready to go. It is simple, rewarding, and fun! We provide your training and are always available for whatever support may be needed.

    Once anyone shows an interest in volunteering, we will send them a volunteer information sheet and will be back in touch with them once it is completed and returned.   

    Teen Volunteer Opportunities: Most of our volunteers are older than teens but we are seeing an increased interest in younger readers. We will happily accept volunteer applications from anyone that is interested in this wonderful service.
