Welcome To NFB of Georgia

Welcome to the National Federation of the Blind of Georgia

Established in 1972, and chartered in 1973 as a state affiliate of the largest organization of blind people in the nation, the National Federation of the Blind. The National Federation of the Blind of Georgia 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.
