The National Federation of the Blind Deaf-Blind Division, a proud division of 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. Together with love, hope and determination, we transform dreams into reality.
