Volunteer Open House               

You can positively affect the lives of blind Iowans by volunteering with the Iowa Department for the Blind. Our programs and services help blind Iowans gain the attitudes about blindness and the skills they need to prepare for training or education, find jobs or careers, and live independently well into old age. By volunteering with us, you can use your skills and talents to help us reach more clients, and help our clients live their dreams—whatever they may be!

The Iowa Department for the Blind will be hosting a Volunteer Open House on Friday April 21, 2023.  The Open House will include a tour of the building, an opportunity to meet staff members and time to discuss the different volunteer opportunities available for individuals and small groups.
