Welcome to the Mountain State Council of the Blind website. 

We are West Virginia’s state affiliate of the American Council of the Blind. 

Our mission is to advocate for the improvement of the social, economic, and cultural status of the blind and visually impaired of West Virginia. 

We have scholarship programs, assistive technology programs, and support the activities of the local chapters.  Please support us in those endeavors.  Supporting us can be as simple as staying in touch.  Join our email list by clicking here.

An Offer You Can't Refuse!

Due to COVID 19, the ACB national conference and convention will be held as a virtual event.  That means convention sessions can be accessed in various ways.

To be eligible for door prizes, and to participate in interactive sessions via Zoom, you must pre-register.

Here’s the good part:

MSCB will reimburse the $25 pre-registration fee to all members who have never attended a national ACB convention. All you need to do is complete the pre-registration form at: 
https://acbconvention.org/
Then email the registration number you were given to Donna Brown at:
dandmbrown@atlanticbb.net
After pre-registration closes, the treasurer of MSCB will mail you a check for $25.

Walking Up a Storm Virtual Style!

MSCB once again is fielding a  team in the ACB Brenda Dillon Memorial Virtual Walk.  We are the West Virginia Walkers, and we are poised to be creative in how we complete our Walk. Our fund-raising goal is $4,000. To join our team or to make a tax-deductible contribution, visit:

ACB Commends West Virginia for Making Absentee Voting Accessible for People with Disabilities

Alexandria, VA — On Monday, February 3, West Virginia Governor Jim Justice signed into law Senate Bill 94, a bill to ensure that all voters in West Virginia are guaranteed access to the ballot box, at polling locations and when voting absentee. On behalf of our nationwide membership, and in conjunction with the Mountain State Council of the Blind, the American Council of the Blind commends West Virginia for working with us to ensure equal access to absentee voting for people with disabilities.
