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.
Organized on January 31, 1971, the National Federation of the Blind of Nebraska is an organization devoted to helping blind individuals reach their full potential. We can help blind residents of Nebraska obtain information about jobs and other training opportunities as well as assist them in finding solutions to problems that they encounter in everyday life. We also work to insure equality for all visually impaired residents of Nebraska by working to pass legislation on the Local, State, and National Level. The NFBN is the Nebraska State affiliate of the National Federation of the Blind.
