About the Grantee

The mission of the American Foundation for the Blind is to create a world of no limits for people who are blind or visually impaired. We mobilize leaders, advance understanding, and champion impactful policies and practices using research and data.

Purpose of the Grant

To sustain AFB’s FamilyConnect® online information service for American families with children who are blind and visually impaired, strengthen and expand the program’s partnership with the National Association for Parents of Children with Visual Impairments and its parent organization (Lighthouse Guild International), and hire an independent evaluator to assess program services and outreach and recommend needed program improvements
