The National Federation of the Blind
of Connecticut

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

The National Federation of the Blind of Connecticut (NFB of CT) is a state affiliate of The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) and works to improve the lives of blind people in Connecticut. By providing information and education to its members and the public, the NFB of CT is changing what it means to be blind.

  • Once again, the NFB of CT is participating in the Travelers Championship's Birdies for Charity Fundraising Program. Please help us out by completing your pledge and, while you're at it, enter the Guess the Birdies Sweepstakes!

  • On July 26th, game time 7:05PM, the National Federation of the Blind of CT will be holding a fundraiser with the New Britain Rock Cats.
