Mission Statement:

Join with us to help build the self-confidence and self-reliance that is needed to take our proper place in today’s world.

Let’s establish a coalition of people and organizations that include the blindness community. We invite you to join our “family” where there will be others to share experiences and challenges. We offer a sharing & caring atmosphere where we can all grow and offer whatever help we can give to others.

We will keep you informed about news in the blindness world through our free publications, personal contact, workshops, speakers, seminars, an conventions. When we need to raise our voices to support causes, it will be a united strong voice. Our Councils have representation in Washington & Tallahassee, working to defend or advocate for our rights and privileges.

Monthly meetings, which are optional, provide fellowship, social activities, information & mutual support. Share in the these benefits, and add your voice to ours, to help make our voices stronger by joining today.
