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!
