Specific people, specific needs, in specific areas.
The National Federation of the Blind of Indiana houses many different divisions that are comprised of people with specific areas of need. For example, you might be a parent of a blind child and are looking to network with someone in that area of our organization. TO answer that need, the NFB of Indiana has developed a parents division. Maybe you are, or know an adult who is losing or has lost vision due to diabetes. We also have a diabetic division that caters to that need. We have several different divisions for several different interests. Feel free to scrol through the list of such, and contact the person that may best be able to help you.
