ABOUT US >

CWAB® was organized on October 9, 1975 when the charter was filed with the state of West Virginia by Charles Harris of Huntington, the founder of CWAB®.

The preamble to the bylaws reads in part, “We, the blind of Cabell and Wayne Counties, bind ourselves to the cause of exploring, expanding and exploiting our abilities as free and equal citizens .

We are the blind speaking for ourselves, relying upon each other for the accomplishment of those goals defined for ourselves by ourselves.”
