Since 1934, the mission of the California Council of the Blind (CCB) is to gain full independence and equality of opportunity for all blind and visually impaired Californians.
CCB is a non-profit tax-exempt organization composed primarily of Californians who are blind or have low vision.
We reflect the diversity of California.
CCB's vision is that culture, laws, programs, and attitudes throughout California are inclusive of all people, especially persons who are blind or visually impaired.
As a statewide membership organization, CCB's mission is to increase the independence, security, equality of opportunity, and quality of life for all Californians who are blind and visually impaired. Through CCB's offices in the Bay Area, Sacramento and Los Angeles, and its 40 local chapters and statewide special interest associations, the Council provides information and referral, technical assistance, advocacy, leadership development, publications, emergency funds, accessible technology loans, and scholarships.
