Keystone Blind Association!
The Keystone Blind Association opened its doors in 1947, due the passion and conviction of one
woman, Lillian Rosenblum. Even at that time, she recognized the need for support and services for
blind and severely visually impaired persons, so that they might be able to not merely survive,
but thrive in a “sighted world”. So she decided to be the advocate for this group of people; by
garnering the support of community leaders and obtaining a charter from Pennsylvania Association
for the Blind, a new human services agency (KBA) was born.
Since that time, KBA has expanded its reach to include all of Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio, and
its scope to embrace Children’s Programs, Prevention of Blindness and employment for blind and
Keystone Blind Association’s mission of service is to promote independence for children and adults
who are blind or visually impaired, to promote eye health and eye safety, and to promote employment
for all persons with disabilities.
Please explore these pages; to learn more about blindness and the options and opportunities that
KBA can provide. We are advocates with a passion for promoting independence and growth for blind
and disabled people. No matter what your question or concern is…
KBA can help!
