Welcome to Association for the Blind
Founded in 1936 in Charleston, the Association for the Blind and the Visually Impaired – Charleston (AVBI-Charleston) is the only privately funded, non-profit dedicated to supporting children and adults living with blindness and visual impairment in the state of South Carolina. Our primary service area is Dorchester County, Berkeley County, Charleston County and surrounding areas.
Our Mission is to serve and support people with visual needs.
Our Goal is to empower individuals with blindness or severe vision loss to live safe, dignified and self-sufficient lives.
Our work depends on the generosity of the community for financial support. Gifts are tax deductable and enable the Association to assist over 3,600 persons annually with information and education services, outreach eye care services and human development services.
For more information on our services, to donate or to volunteer please call the Mary Morrison, Executive Director at 843-723-6915 or email, AFTB@aftbsc.org.
