For Parents

Helping Families Help Their Blind Kids

What is the Mission?

POBC of Maryland's mission is to ensure the best future for our blind youth by promoting quality education, fostering self-esteem, and connecting our youth to wonderful blind role models in the community. 

One of the many ways that we promote quality education is by providing training seminars for parents in IEP advocacy. We can also help to advocate for students by attending IEP meetings.  Our collaborations build solid foundations for productive lives, which maximize independence. One of the many ways that we help parents to promote independence for their children is by providing Youth Empowerment Stipends so that the child can attend special summer training programs.
