About MCBVI


Welcome to the Michigan Council of the Blind and Visually Impaired (MCBVI), the Michigan affiliate of the American Council of the Blind (ACB)!


Our Mission:

To act as a catalyst in changing the lives of people who are blind and visually impaired and their families through education, advocacy, and camaraderie.


Our Goal:

To advocate for the independence, security, and quality of life for people who are blind and visually impaired throughout Michigan. We do this in a positive, productive, and supportive environment by sharing ideas and enjoying friendships!


MCBVI is a registered non-profit organization in Michigan, with members of all ages who are blind, visually impaired, or sighted. We represent a broad diversity of cultural and professional backgrounds. We have local chapters around the state including our phone chapter connecting members from various locations. We welcome your participation in achieving our goals, and hope you will join us!
