The Montana Association for the Blind has been improving the lives of blind and low-vision Montanans since 1946. Our main program is our annual Summer Orientation Program - a month-long training for newly blind adults. We bring people from across the state to a college to learn independent living skills like walking with a white cane, talking computer programs, Braille, technology, cooking, daily living skills, and more. Participants usually come in with the feeling that they cannot do things because they are blind, but they leave knowing that they can do almost everything they used to before sight loss. Participants do not pay for room, board, or the cost of this vital training. There are no other programs in the state that offer what we do in our summer program. In addition, we have monthly support/outreach groups that meet across the state, scholarships for college-bound students, and two no-interest loan programs so that blind people can get the adaptive equipment that they need.
We add Feature Views for every $ you pay.
