WELCOME TO THE NATIONAL FEDERATION OF THE BLIND VERMONT

The NFB of Vermont is the Vermont state affiliate of the National Federation of the Blind. We are changing what it means to be blind in Vermont!

The real problem of blindness is not the loss of eyesight. The real problem is the misunderstanding and lack of information which exists. If a blind person has proper training and opportunity, blindness is only a physical nuisance.
