What We Do

At Metrolina Association for the blind, our mission is to reduce or eliminate the daily living challenges imposed upon people by blindness or visual impairment. We respond to these unique challenges two ways - through our Vision Rehab and Accessible Document Services.

The Vision Rehab Services (VRS) Department enables blind and visually impaired people to adjust to their vision loss and manage daily living activities independently by providing them with direct services such as therapeutic casework, vision rehabilitation therapy, orientation and mobility instruction, low vision training and support services.

The Accessible Document Services (ADS) Department has been providing an important national need for Braille, Large Print, Audio CD and Accessible PDF transcription for various industries who are meeting their customers needs for accessible materials.

Revenue generated through the ADS department provides for the expansion of its VRS client services so dollars spent are doubly effective.

There are approximately 9,000 people in the greater Charlotte area that could directly benefit from MAB's programs.
