Help Make a Difference for People with Print Disabilities

ABLE’s volunteer team is the heart of our organization. Thanks to a strong, vibrant professional team of volunteers we’re able to put braille, tactile, and audio materials into the hands of people who are blind, visually impaired, or print disabled.

  • Do you like to learn, do research, or solve puzzles?
