Welcome to the home page of the Friends of the Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired (NCBVI). Our organization is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We have been in existence since 2005 and have an active board of ten members. Our purpose is to assist in any issue the Commission faces, where the federal-state funding system comes up short.

Note: the graphic within the heading of this page is the official logo of NCBVI. We have been given permission to include it on our website and are honored to further the branding efforts of the Commission. Furthermore, if you receive an email from us, check out the bottom of the message, you will find NCBVI's mission statement: Empowering Blind Individuals, Promoting Opportunities, and Building Belief in the Blind.
