Mission Statement

The national Federation Of the blind creates programs and advocates for policies which improve the independence, quality of life, and equal opportunity for persons who are blind.

Description

The National Federation Of the Blind is the largest organized movement of blind people in the United States with over 50,000 members in all US states and territories. Locally in Nevada we run training programs to provide computer technology and life skills training, career building opportunities, sports and recreation and more. We conduct legislative advocacy to protect the dignity and equality of Nevadans who are blind. We partner with other organizations in Communities around the state to improve public infrastructure and raise awareness of issues concerning Nevadans who are blind. We provide information and services for friends, family, and others who support persons who are blind.

The NFB is maintained exclusively by the blind for the blind, Opportunities for persons who are blind begin with the NFB and we are proud of our talent and abilities. Within the organization, we strive to create programs and iniciatives that maximize the skills available to us in the organization. The NFB is a place where people who are blind and their families can come and learn to be blind with dignity and respect.
