After much deliberation in deciding the FORGE Your Dot ORg 2011 recipient, we have selected the American Council of the Blind of Ohio (ACBO). They help people who are blind or who are experiencing vision loss connect with the services they need. They also educate the general public about blindness and the abilities of employees, citizens, and neighbors who are blind. ACBO is a statewide organization, with nine local chapters serving several counties, but they plan to extend their services to include rural areas.
We are very excited to begin our partnership with the American Council of the Blind of Ohio! Stay posted to our forgeyour.org blog to see how exactly we plan on kicking off with ACBO.
