About Action Fund for the Blind/Twin Vision Library:

he American Action Fund for Blind Children and Adults (Action Fu8nd for the Blind) is a service agency that specializes in providing to blind people help that is not readily available to them from government programs or other existing service systems. It operates through countless volunteers across the nation, overseen by a volunteer board and a full-time executive director. Mr. Marc Maurer currently serves in this position.

The purpose of the Action Fund for the Blind is to assist blind and deaf-blind persons in securing reading matter, to educate the public about blindness, to provide specialized aids and appliances to the blind, to give consultation to governmental and private agencies serving the blind, to offer assistance to those losing vision in their later years, to offer services to blind children and their parents, and to work toward improving the quality of life for the blind and deaf-blind.

All of the board members of the Action Fund for the Blind are blind and receive no financial compensation for their services. The members of the board have succeeded in a variety of occupations and activities and have learned to deal with blindness and its inconveniences.

The Action Fund for the Blind has its headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland, and offices and facilities in Tarzana, California, and volunteer workers throughout the country. The Tarzana office houses our free lending library of Braille and Twin VisionĀ® (print/Braille) picture books for blind children, while the Baltimore office manages our Free Braille Book program. Books are sent postage free to borrowers in the United States and Canada. The Action Fund also distributes free Braille calendars to blind and deaf-blind people on a nationwide basis.
