Since 1908 the mission of the Northeastern Association of the Blind at Albany (NABA) has been to assist persons with visual impairment to achieve independence and growth.

So by volunteering at NABA you’re not only providing crucial support to individuals receiving rehabilitation, but get the chance to meet others while having fun. Your support can go a long way and the rewards are countless!
