NABA's mission is to provide services and support to help blind and visually impaired people achieve independence and growth. In 1908, a group of ten blind men and women assembled in an effort to overcome their difficulties adjusting to their vision loss. Together they formed what would become the Albany Association of the Blind, predecessor of today's organization, NABA.
For more than 100 years, NABA has been a vital community resource
providing assistance for women, men and children experiencing blindness and vision loss. In 2010, the oldest person we served was 102 years old
and the youngest was 18 months.
