About us:

BAAB is a non-profit organization headquartered in Satellite Beach, Brevard County, FL. Incorporated in 1966, BAAB provides services for people who are visually impaired, blind, and legally blind. 

When low vision begins to impact your daily life, if you are having trouble reading or coping with the every day challenges of living at home, BAAB is here to help.  Because of BAAB’s all-volunteer staff and individual donations, BAAB is able to provide all services free of charge.  BAAB receives funds from private contributions, membership dues and memorial donations. 

What BAAB Does:

BAAB provides a unique Program for Independent Living (PIL) that teaches daily living skills to adults who have lost or are losing their vision.  The program includes personal and household management, orientation and mobility, leisure time activities and communication skills. 

Another premier service of this all-volunteer organization is to record “Talking Books”.  “Talking Books” is a free nationwide program that disseminates recorded books, magazines and other publications at no charge to people who are blind or visually impaired.  The Talking Book Library in Cocoa, FL, is the source for distributing this material to Brevard County residents.  More than 1700 area adults and students are currently receiving recorded books and magazines.  BAAB volunteers also record for the Southeast Regional Library, and the National Library Service.  All recordings are governed by the strict requirements of The Library of Congress.
