Educating and Encouraging Since 1936

Are you a person with vision loss?
Do you know someone with vision loss?
There is help.

Imagine being in a marching band, attending a group fitness class, rock climbing, shooting arrows at an archery range, completing a high ropes course, producing art, skiing down a mountain. Now, imagine doing all of those things with limited or no sight at all.

These are some of the things the North Dakota Association of the Blind does to See Blind Possible!

We have many programs, but our Adult Camp and Recreational Retreat are specifically designed to enhance life for those with sight loss.

Many times, when one is blind there is an overwhelming sense of isolation and loss of independence. That’s where we can help! We promote socialization, teamwork and education through fun engaging activities to help ease the isolation and create increased independence. We encourage and assist all we serve to See Blind Possible!

Our vision is for all North Dakotans who are blind or visually impaired to live fulfilling, independent lives!

A heart that says Feb. 9 and Giving Hearts Day

On Giving Hearts Day 2023, the North Dakota Association of the Blind will be seeking donations alongside nonprofits across North Dakota and Northwest Minnesota. A major source of support for the work we do is generated from our participation in Giving Hearts Day.

Please donate February 9, 2023, to support our nonprofit, volunteer organization. Any size gift is deeply appreciated and goes directly to help us enhance the way of life for people with sight loss.

To give to NDAB on Giving Hearts Day, go to We are so very thankful for your friendship and support.


If you want to share your daily challenges or get ideas on how to complete a task using reduced or no vision, local support groups are available offering mentoring and support. Learn more about support groups here.


For students who are pursuing further education, NDAB has scholarships. Learn more here. We are here to help make life more livable.

NDAB provides assistance with learning adaptive daily living skills, and alternative leisure activities. We organize and run a week-long camp where these skills can be developed. Learn more about camp here.


We also promote the awareness of sight loss through lobbying, fund raising, and conventions. Without fund raising or donations, NDAB would fail in its mission. If you want to help, you can become a member, or make a donation.
