The New Hampshire Association for the Blind (NHAB) and The McGreal Sight Center
The New Hampshire Association for the Blind is the statewide leader in providing vision rehabilitation services for New Hampshire people of all ages who are blind and visually impaired. Founded in 1912, it provides services in virtually every community statewide and at the McGreal Sight Center in Concord.
Many people are unaware how common severe vision impairment is, particularly among older people. Most do not know that nearly all people who are blind or visually impaired can greatly benefit from rehabilitation services to regain independence after loss of sight.
The McGreal Sight Center
Located at 25 Walker Street, Concord, NH, the McGreal Sight Center is the headquarters of the New Hampshire Association for the Blind - the first vision rehabilitation center in New Hampshire (dedicated in 1998). Comprehensive individual and group services are available at the Center for those able to travel to Concord.
The Association provides travel assistance for clients wishing to receive services at the Center, either by taxi paid for by generous grants to the Association, or by volunteer drivers.
At the Center, clients and their families may consult about vision impairment and blindness and the many services offered to help people regain or maintain the ability to function independently after vision loss.
The state-of-the-art computer lab is open daily and supports all the new technological advances for people who are blind and visually impaired. Our full-time Assistive Technology Specialist teaches regular classes that are available for individuals and small groups - and the Association plays host to a monthly Technology User's Group.
