How can I donate to NCBVI?

NCBVI is funded by national and state government grants. However, we deeply appreciate private donations which help us provide more and better services to Nebraskans who are blind and low vision.

To make a cash donation, you can mail a check to the address below or drop it off at the front desk. If you would like to ensure that the check is spent on a certain program or project, please indicate this in an enclosed letter (e.g. senior citizens, youth, services to Spanish speakers, technology, etc.)

What can I do if I disagree with a decision made by my counselor?

The Client Assistance Program (CAP) is a neutral agency available to help you with any questions or concerns regarding your services with NCBVI. CAP will work with you to resolve your disagreement with your counselor by providing free advocacy and mediation.

Bienvenue à la Commission du Nebraska pour les aveugles et la basse vision (NCBVI), qui est à son tour l’agence de réadaptation professionnelle de l’État pour les aveugles et la basse vision. Nous donnons aux gens les moyens d’avoir une perte de vision en mettant des outils, de la formation, du mentorat et des ressources à portée de main pendant leur séjour au secondaire et au collège, en trouvant et en maintenant leur emploi et en participant activement à leur collectivité.
