Founded in 1986 by the National Federation of the Blind of Minnesota because of the failure of traditional, charity-based blindness agencies to meet the real needs of the state’s blind residents, BLIND, Inc. has grown rapidly. Offering vocational rehabilitation programs for blind adults, an English Language program for blind immigrants and refugees, training and employment programs for blind teens, a summer training program for blind children, an independent living skills training program for blind senior citizens, blindness immersion programs for professionals working with blind people, and public education programs about blindness, BLIND, Inc's principles are simple but powerful: blindness is just the physical loss of eyesight, nothing more. Blind people are like everyone else, and can be expected to perform on a par with everyone else, as long as they get effective training. Currently BLIND, Inc. is fighting for survival to continue to serve their students especially during these difficult times of COVID-19. BLIND, Inc. employs and has served many adoptees over the years. BLIND, Inc's need for funding will provide three months of housing, food, and computer classes to BLIND, Inc's students while they recover from the devastating effects of the global pandemic - A full list of benefiting organizations can be found under the community partners section on this silent auction home page.
