The goal of our non-profit is to be able to assist as many children and families as possible by providing weighted vests for little to no cost!
Vests for Visionaries takes old uniforms and transforms them into weighted vests for children with special needs, FREE of charge. If you are interested in donating to the cause, please click the "donations" link above. If your family is in need of a weighted vest, please email the page from the "contact us" link above or the "request a vest" link below. I do not personally weight the vests. We are located locally in Columbia, SC, but do have the ability to invoice for shipping if you are out of state.
Please be aware the current wait time is very long. With the recent spike in media exposure and requests, we are unsure of an exact wait time (1-2 years). Thank You for your continued support.
Deep pressure, weighted vests and blankets can be highly beneficial to some children with autism, sensory integration disorder, ADHD and other neurological disorders. Based on the sensory integration technique, the added weight or pressure provides the special needs child with unconscious information from their muscles and joints. As a result, they may better integrate sensory information, calm, become more organized and improve their ability to concentrate, learn or eat.
