Reviews for New Hampshire Association For The Blind
Although I don't know very much about the New Hampshire Association for the Blind, the fact that it is in the capable and compassionate hands of George Theriault is an endorsement beyond compare. I have known George for over sixty years, and I can truly say that I know of no more kind, caring, and good-hearted person on this planet. That George has chosen to dedicate his efforts to the New Hampshire Association of the Blind speaks volumes about the worth of that most fortunate organization.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my ongoing friendship with George Theriault.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
defer to the better judgement of George Theriault.
