Benefits of Membership

There are many benefits to becoming a member. Here are a few:

  1. You will meet other individuals who understand what it’s like to be blind or visually impaired: the good, bad, and the ugly. Forging new friendships creates a web of support.
  2. Members can take part in our support and education programs. These include an adult summer camp and regular support groups, and outdoor recreation opportunities.
  3. Many of our projects could use your help. Are you a fundraiser, an organizer, an advocate, a technologist, any other talents?
  4. We like to have fun. There are ample opportunities to participate in events such as Ski for Light, NDAB’s Adult Summer Camp, and others.
  5. NDAB isn’t just for individuals with vision loss. Your family and friends are also encouraged to join. It’s a great way for them to learn about vision loss and for them to connect with other families/friends for support.
