WHO WE ARE

ICUB Logo

We are the Iowa Council of the United Blind—ICUB, for short--and we are here for you.  We are blind people dedicated to empowering Iowans who have vision loss with the tools, support and opportunities needed to build a better, fuller, and more independent life. We are a resource. We are advocates. We are fighters for equality. We are your friends, neighbors, and colleagues from all walks of life. Most of all, we want to meet you! Reach out and say hello!

mission statement

The Iowa Council of the United Blind is a consumer-run organization dedicated to improving the equality, opportunity, and independence of blind Iowans.  Through education, advocacy, and a firm belief in the potential and abilities of people with vision loss, we help each other become fully participating members of our families, communities, and workplaces.
