We know that losing one's vision is difficult. This is true if a person has total or partial vision loss. But it does not have to mean the end of living a productive and happy life. We are here to help people experiencing vision loss.
The Montana Association for the Blind (MAB) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people with vision problems live happier and more independent lives. It was created in 1946 by some blind people and their friends who recognized the need for an organization in which blind and low vision Montanans could connect with others, find resources, and receive training.
Our programs include local chapters in 9 communities across the state that meet monthly to give one another support, socialize, and learn. We hold the Summer Orientation Program each year - it is a one-month program that gives training newly blind and low vision adults in independent living skills. This is offered at no cost to the student for training, room, and board! We also have a program that loans money, at no interest, to members who would like to purchase adaptive equipment.
