Who We Are? serving the blind & visually impaired
If you’ve been affected by blindness or visual impairment, know someone who has, or if you’re just seeking information, you’ve come to the right place.
ASB is a Philadelphia-based non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring self-esteem, independence and self determination among people who are blind or visually impaired.
What We Do? promote self-esteem & independence
Adapting to life with little or no vision can be a daunting challenge. Fear and uncertainty can be overwhelming. Even a lifelong home can suddenly become foreign and perilous. In blindness or visual impairment, much of what a sighted person takes for granted needs to be relearned in a completely new way.
What You Can Do? we depend on you!
We’re dedicated to the work we do and the people we serve, but we can’t do it without help. The services, education and support that we offer are possible, in large part, thanks to the generosity of those who give their time or financial resources.
