Learn More Akron Blind Center

The Akron Blind Center, Inc., is a membership-based non-profit organization begun in 1913 and Incorporated in 1948 to serve the visually challenged communities, with fully sighted volunteers, to all levels of vision loss. We also provide resources, programs, services and classes for Summit and surrounding counties.

We provide a sense of family, belonging, purpose, hope, empowerment and accomplishment to like-challenged members, in a safe and fun learning and social environment. We are always accepting new members and volunteers, no matter what level of vision.

BBB Seal
We are proud to have earned the Better Business Bureau Charitable Alliance seal, which is their highest honor, having met 20 of 20 stringent standards (rare nationally). This means the public can be assured we are good caretakers of donations and spending.

The people here are truly remarkable. They overcome so much and show how patience and persistence can win the day. The next time you think you are having a tough day, take away your vision (and with it transportation, visual judgement and convenience) and think what you would do.
