Services and Engagement

Our chapter engages with the Missoula community as well as the state at large in a variety of ways. If you’d like more information about any of our activities, we’d love to hear from you.


We believe that anyone living with blindness should be treated equitably in all walks of life. As blind people ourselves, we work together to stand up for our own rights and interests. We believe full integration into society includes the ability to participate politically, socially, economically, educationally and domestically.

We strive to be active in our local Missoula area, to support our state affiliate’s lobbying efforts during the 2023 legislation session as well as the NFB Washington Seminar.

Peer Support

No matter where you are in your blindness journey, our members are here to help. The loss of eyesight can be sudden or a long-term process, and the Missoula chapter have a diverse range of experiences with blindness. We also understand the challenges of participating in society and learning new blind skills. In our monthly chapter meetings, we welcome anyone seeking solidarity to participate.

Information Referral

We work with a variety of other organizations and our members possess a wealth of knowledge that may be useful to those losing their vision, those already living with blindness or those with a loved one who is blind/low vision. Please feel free to contact us with specific questions or visit our Resources page.

Public Education

Providing education to the general public about blindness is key to our mission for equity and inclusion for our community. We engage in public education through a variety of means. We are working todevelop programs and presentations that can address topics such as Blind Etiquette, Accessibility In the Workplace and Digital Best Practices. If you or your organization would like to arrange a speaker or presentation in one of these areas, please visit our contact page.
