About The Commission for the Blind
Vision
                                                                    

For over 50 years, the Oregon Commission for the Blind has been an important resource for Oregonians who are blind as well as their families, friends, and employers. Our mission is to assist Oregonians who are blind or in making informed choices and decisions to achieve full inclusion and integration in society through employment, independent living, and social self-sufficiency.

Our nationally recognized programs and expert staff work with individuals who are blind to instill confidence and build skills in all aspects of day-to-day life: from grocery shopping to reading to surfing the Web. We are headquartered in Portland, but have field offices and resources available in Salem, Eugene, Baker City, Redmond, Medford, and Roseburg.
