The Bay State Council of the Blind (BSCB) is a membership organization of blind, visually impaired and sighted individuals committed to an enhanced quality of life for Massachusetts’ blind and visually impaired residents. BSCB offers publications, regional and special-interest chapters, informative meetings, a special radio show, Council Connection, and leisure activities for people who want to be aware and active members of their communities and the world around them. 

In addition to statewide events, we have four local area chapters (Boston, Charles River for the west Boston suburbs, South Shore and Central Massachusetts), and one special interest chapter (Guide Dog Users of Massachusetts). Our chapters also sponsor social events and work on advocacy efforts.
