NFB of Ohio Logo with the phrase Live the Life You Want

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

National Federation of the Blind of Ohio, Home

More than 500,000 people in the United States are legally blind, and each year at least 50,000  more will become blind. A 1988 Gallup poll reports that, after AIDS, Alzheimer’s, and cancer, blindness is the medical condition (and certainly the disability) people fear most. When blindness strikes, many people turn to the National Federation of the Blind and its state affiliates.

The National Federation of the Blind of Ohio is an organization of blind people providing peer support for one another. Blindness need not be a tragedy. We work together integrating blind people into society as equals and productive members by helping them outgrow their many misconceptions about blindness and by changing the laws affecting us.

The most important thing you can do is help us spread our understanding about blindness. When you see our literature in the mail or meet one of us on the street, remember that we are people just like you—with all the range of talents and capacities, wits and wants that you possess.

You can also help by contributing to our organization or remembering the National Federation of the Blind of Ohio in your will. The National Federation of the Blind of Ohio is principally supported by public contributions. Donations are tax-deductible.
