Welcome to VOSH-Northwest

Our primary mission of VOSH-Northwest (a Chapter of VOSH-International) is to facilitate the provision of vision care worldwide to people who can neither afford nor obtain such care.

The VOSH-Northwest Chapter covers the states of Washington, Idaho, Alaska and Oregon but boasts membership throughout the United States and the World.
