Welcome to the NFB Of South Carolina!

Welcome to NFBSC.NET

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 have the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

The NFB of South Carolina is a non-profit, private organization of the blind working together to improve the quality of life for all blind people in South Carolina. In order for its influence to be felt on a national level, the NFB of SC is affiliated with the National Federation of the Blind, the nation's oldest and largest organization open to all the blind.

With more than 2,000 members, the NFB of SC consists of 60 affiliated organizations, 57 of which are local chapters located throughout the state. There is also a statewide Student Division, Blind Merchants Division and a Parents of Blind Children Division. Wherever you live in South Carolina, we have a chapter near you!

The NFB of SC is an energetic organization dedicated to service and its continuing programs are always designed to improve the economic, social and spiritual lives of blind South Carolinians.
