The Pennsylvania Association of DeafBlind (PADB) serves as a mechanism through which the DeafBlind and interested blind, sighted and hearing persons working with the DeafBlind populations can come together to plan and carry out vocational, cultural and social programs to improve the quality of life for those who have a combined hearing and vision loss. Specifically, the Division works to raise awareness of the issues of DeafBlindness, to educate the public and to advocate for the needs of the DeafBlind both in Pennsylvania and on a national level through programs and initiatives of the National Federation of the Blind’s DeafBlind Division.
Membership is open to those who are DeafBlind, their family members and those who work in the field of DeafBlindness.
NFBPA DeafBlind Division dues are $5 per calendar year. Pay your dues with a credit card, debit card, or personal PayPal account. You can also mail a check to the NFB of PA Treasurer. Contact Brian Mackey via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
