WELCOME TO THE NATIONAL FEDERATION OF THE BLIND OF CONNECTICUT

The members of the National Federation of the Blind of Connecticut know 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.

THE REAL PROBLEM WITH BLINDNESS IS NOT THE LOSS OF EYESIGHT...

"The real problem with blindness is not the loss of eyesight. The real problems are misunderstanding and the lack of information which exist. If a blind person has proper training and opportunity, blindness can be reduced to a physical nuisance." - Dr. Kenneth Jernigan, who served as President Emeritus following his eighteen years as president of the National Federation of the Blind.
