Fairfax Chapter

The biggest challenge to those who are vision impaired is not their lack of visual acuity. Rather, it is the lack of information on how to live a happy, successful and productive life as a person with limited vision. The Fairfax chapter of the NFB “Bridges the Gap” by providing information and resources to those with visual impairments, their family and friends, as well as the general public.

The Fairfax Chapter of the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) serves Fairfax City, Vienna, Falls Church, Herndon and the surrounding Fairfax County region. Monthly meetings occur on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Our meetings begin at 6:00pm for dinner followed by programs of entertaining and educational topics of interest from 7:00pm until 8:30pm.

Our mission and who we serve

The Fairfax Chapter of the NFBV was founded in 1998 in order to assist those with low vision to more fully participate. We do this by offering information, fellowship, and opportunities to excel.

What makes our organization effective in assisting others with vision loss is that we are visually impaired ourselves. In short, we know from personal experience about the challenges and we exist to share our knowledge with others.

We are experts in blindness and what the blind are truly capable of. Come join us!
