The NEAT Center at Oak Hill is a place to learn about the latest technologies, products, equipment and services that assist people with day-to-day activities that they have trouble doing themselves, either because of a disability or the effects of aging.

Oak Hill supports all veterans who have served and sacrificed to defend our country.

Oak Hill’s work with blind and visually impaired veterans through its New England Assistive Technology (NEAT) Center is critical to helping them return to self-sufficiency and employment. The Veterans’ Administration and states of Connecticut and Massachusetts are eager to get veterans back to work, offering tax benefits to companies who hire them. We have worked with the Veterans Administration for over seven years, servicing blind and low vision veterans of all ages in CT and MA.
