Administrative History: In 1841, The Very Reverend Dr Thomas Youens founded the Catholic Blind Institute (CBI) in Liverpool, England. Originally called the Catholic Blind Asylum, it was the first charitable organization established in England for Catholic persons who were blind. In 1850, the charity also established a school. St. Vincent's School for the Blind, which has been at its current site in Yew Tree Lane, West Derby, since 1904. Today, the Catholic Blind Institute administers educational services for primary and secondary children through St. Vincent's School for the Blind, and also runs a home for the elderly and a rehabilitation center that are in close proximity to the school.
