Promoting the economic self-sufficiency of blind Montanans

What is the Montana Association for the Blind?

The Montana Association for the Blind (MAB) is a statewide, nonprofit, self-help, consumer organization. The MAB was founded by blind and visually impaired Montanans and their friends in 1946.

We work to better the lives of blind and visually impaired Montanans with our summer training program, teaching needed skills to newly blind adults and by advocating on issues affecting the blind and visually impaired.

The MAB has 11 local chapters across the state, and is supported by member contributions, fundraisers and contributions through Montana Shares. Donations may be made to MAB local chapters or the state office.

Mission and Vision

The mission of the Montana Association for the Blind is to promote the economic and social self-sufficiency of blind Montanans through the facilitation of quality education, learning, training, and employment services and opportunities, and to foster a positive understanding of blindness.

Our vision is of a Montana in which blindness is perceived and understood to be an ordinary and respectable part of life and in which the skills and tools of blindness are readily available to all who may benefit from them. We envision an environment in which blind Montanans have ample and equal opportunities to achieve, and contribute in our homes, communities and nation.

The Montana Association for the Blind is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. All contributions are tax deductible. Please, contact our main office for more information.
