MAB Community Services has been creating opportunities for people with disabilities since 1903. Helen Keller served on our first advisory board, along with other notable Bostonians who developed some of the first community services for blind individuals. Today we specialize in individualized rehabilitation and family-focused strategies that help individuals with a range of disabilities live full lives in the community. Today, we have three divisions which include MAB Adult Disability Services, the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired, and the Ivy Street School
MAB Community Services (MAB) is committed to creating opportunities and transforming the lives of individuals with a range of disabilities. Our goal is focused on providing the support necessary so everyone can live a full and satisfying life. Since 1903 MAB has provided the training and supports necessary for individuals, regardless of their disabilities, to be active participants in their communities and in their own lives. We approach this work with a commitment to create and sustain a diverse, equitable, inclusive, and accessible environment for all staff and participants.
