NFB logo and tagline - LIVE THE LIFE YOU WANT


 covered bridge saco river NH

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

In New Hampshire we have three chapters: Great Northwoods, Lakes Region and Monadnock Chapter


Great Northwoods Chapter

Serving Northern NH communities

Lakes Region Chapter

"You are a light. You are the light. Never let anyone any person or any force dampen, dim or diminish your light. Study the path of others to make your way easier and more abundant."

John Lewis, from his 2017 memoir, "Across That Bridge: A Vision for Change and the Future of America"

Welcome to the National Federation of the Blind of New Hampshire Lakes Region Chapter. We are the oldest and largest chapter in the state. We support the central principles of the NFB. We invite all the blind across this great state to help us in the fight for equality, help us make more secure the lives of the blind, and in creating better opportunities so that all blind people everywhere can live their best lives. New members welcome.
