Improving the lives of Maine citizens who are blind and visually impaired since 1903
Sherry Belka, President
The ACB of Maine is a grassroots consumer group affiliated with the American Council of the Blind. Our purpose is to promote the independence, security, equality of opportunity, and quality of life for all the people of Maine who are blind and visually impaired.
Being blind and visually impaired means so many things. The added responsibilities that go hand in hand with losing one’s sight can sometimes seem like a never ending struggle. There are many positive things that go along with vision loss as well. The friendships, the support, the great feelings that go along with overcoming obstacles, the camaraderie of fellow vision impaired people throughout the great state of Maine.
ACB of Maine has been a proud organization in the Pine Tree State for many years. Through grass roots efforts, the members of ACB of Maine continue to reach out and offer strength, courage and support for the blind community of Maine.
To become a member, contact our Treasurer, Cheryl Peabody, at (207) 872-7594 or [email protected] for more information.
Being blind or visually impaired can take on a life of its own, but never forget that this precious gift will always belong to no one but you. Make the best of it, and go have yourself an ACB Day!
