Mission & Purpose

We are changing what it means to be blind. The National Federation of the Blind of Ohio advocates for blind Ohioans who are not receiving services, or who have faced discrimination. NSB is knowledgeable about Social Security benefits, Supplemental Security Income, rehabilitation, and library services.


Face-to-face and phone support and advice to blind adults and children and their families. Provide print, CD or cassette information, literature, and publications about blindness and the NFB to these people, government and agency offices, and members. Blind leaders conduct seminars and workshops for parents of blind children, blind students, access technology users, blind diabetics, and local chapter members. Conduct a state scholarship program and help Ohio’s blind students compete in the NFBs national scholarship program. Sign up and train blind people to use NFB-NEWSLINE. Support and make available to blind Ohioans programs, publications and facilities of the national headquarters.


We offer our service and expertise to people losing vision, those who are newly blind, blind people who are having problems, and parents of blind children who need assistance getting the services their youngsters need.
