Purpose of Georgia Council of the Blind

Group picture of some GCB membersThe Georgia Council of the Blind is a non-profit consumer organization affiliated with the American Council of the Blind. We strive to elevate the social, economic, and cultural levels of the blind. For over 40 years, GCB has been working toward providing a forum for views of the blind, improving education and rehabilitation, and broadening vocational opportunities for the visually impaired. Peer support is an important part of GCB as it encourages and assists the blind in developing their abilities and potential to become independent and responsible citizens in their communities. Peer support is especially helpful for the newly blind who may be confused or bitter. GCB works hard to educate the public about the problems of blindness and the needs and capabilities of the blind. Cooperation with the public and private institutions and agencies for the blind is encouraged. G C B holds a convention each year at different locations throughout the state. This event offers timely and informative educational programs as well as recreational and social interaction with members and non-members from all over the state of Georgia. GCB activities and programs include: educational programs, legislative action, scholarships, peer support, technology, exhibits, news letters, social activities, and braille.
