Welcome to the North Dakota Association of the Blind

We strive to enhance the way of life for people who are blind or visually impaired, to encourage employment opportunities and to educate the public about sight loss. Our vision is for all North Dakotans who are blind or visually impaired to live fulfilling, independent lives.

2024 Convention: “The Enchanted Journey”

Hear ye, hear ye! This year’s North Dakota Association of the Blind convention will be held Friday, June 7, through Sunday, June 9. The theme for the weekend is “The Enchanted Journey,” and it will be held at the Enchanted Castle in Regent.

Our priorities


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 about available scholarships 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.
