The Indiana Association of Workers for the Blind (IAWB) was founded on December 12, 1912 in Indianapolis. Its first president was W. E. Metcalf. The stated purpose of the organization was advocacy for the blind in Indiana. It has since evolved to help all persons who are suffering from significant visual impairment (legally blind) to come together and discuss issues of common significance and to provide social activities geared for such persons.
Currently the Fort Wayne Chapter of the Workers conducts a monthly luncheon meeting for all members, annual indoor summer picnic and annual Christmas dinner.
To assist all persons who are suffering from significant visual impairment in coming together for the purpose of discussing issues of common significance and to provide ongoing social activities for members and charitable assistance where needed.
This organization is wonderful. I have a daughter who is totally blind and has become free and encouraged to try whatever her dreams maybe because of this group. She has made many friends and each one encourages the other.
