Mission Statement

The highest goal of the National Federation of the Blind is the complete integration of the blind into society on a basis of equality. This objective involves the removal of legal, economic, and social discrimination and replacing them with new concepts concerning blindness. It means the right of the blind to work along with their sighted neighbors in the professions, common callings, skilled trades, and regular occupations.

The NFBC provides services to senior citizens who are experiencing vision loss, blind students, parents of blind children, and to all other blind or visually impaired people. These services are provided throughout the state by our 25 local chapters and divisions at no expense to blind and visually impaired people and their families. By educating the general public, as well as the blind population, about blindness and vision loss, we are changing what it means to be blind.
