DBCA is a federally recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with combined vision and hearing loss (“deafblind”).

At DBCA, we firmly believe every child, woman and man has a right to life, dignity, and the pursuit of happiness anywhere in the global human community and regardless of their abilities. Many communities within the larger society have little or no voice. Therefore, DBCA strives for a better world that embraces every human being. Societies are strongest when every community has a voice and can contribute to maintain a society’s prosperity.
