American Council of the Blind of Colorado (ACBCO) is a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization dedicated to promoting the independence, equality, and opportunities for all blind and visually impaired individuals in the state of Colorado. Vision: ACBCO exists so that The Blind and Visually Impaired in Colorado Will Function to Their Greatest Capacity, with results justifying expenditure of resources. Values Statement: ACBCO actions and culture are guided by integrity and inclusiveness in all our efforts to empower individuals involved with our work.
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit ACBCO continues to experience many significant accomplishments. We successfully operated the Sight for Seniors program and increased the outreach of this program along with our other services. Outreach in 2009 increased by 20% as a result of our capacity building efforts to slightly over 4200 individuals. We hosted a “Dinner in the Dark” event to bridge the gap between the sighted and blind/visually impaired worlds. We use this event to educate those in attendance while also raising program funding. We were able be in front of over 10,000 individuals during the Denver Marathon when we participated by walking the last mile and tens of thousands of others at events such as the People's Fair. We have made over 85 presentations to service clubs, residential areas, veterans and senior groups to help provide education specific to eye health, disease and prevention during the past year throughout the State.
