Mission

The Minnesota DeafBlind Association has worked since 1979 to…

  • Alleviate the social isolation and close the information gap associated with DeafBlindness. We hold at least one event per year in Minnesota areas where there are fewer DeafBlind people.
  • Provide a supportive place to share information and receive training about personal safety, financial literacy, assistive technology, peer mentorship, current events, and more.
  • Help DeafBlind individuals maintain an important sense of community and make lasting friendships with other DeafBlind people, both statewide and nationally. MDBA is an affiliate of the American Association of the DeafBlind.
  • Support the continued empowerment of DeafBlind individuals, helping them to preserve and increase their self-esteem and self-reliance in an atmosphere of unconditional acceptance and reduced communication barriers.
