The Michigan Commission for the Blind (MCB) was established on October 1, 1978. For more than 30 years, MCB has been "Changing Lives, Changing Attitudes" by providing services to people in Michigan who are blind or visually impaired. The mission of the Michigan Commission for the Blind (MCB) is to provide opportunity to individuals who are blind or visually impaired to achieve employability and/or function independently in society. The MCB vision is that someday it will be said that Michigan is a great place for blind people to live, learn, work, raise a family, and enjoy life because: 1. An excellent array of rehabilitation and education services are fully accessible to blind people, 2. Blind people in Michigan believe in themselves and their capacity to achieve excellence, 3. The state's general population believes in the abilities of blind people and understands what blindness is and what it is not, and 4. Michigan employers understand, believe in, and hire people who are blind.
