New Hampshire Association for the Blind
October 31, 2011
Most nonprofits serving persons with disabilities talk of helping clients to live fuller livers. The New Hampshire Association for the Blind is one of the few that succeeds. The Association does this through tireless outreach and a one-on-one approach that matches a person’s needs with practical solutions. In my case, a low-vision exam yielded useful reading aids, its local office found volunteers to provide transportation, and through the NHAB, I learned about other resources and got to try daily living aids. NHAB provides home visits, seeks my feedback on their services, and always makes me feel that everything they do stems from my needs, rather than any dispassionate process or policy.
