NJ Seniors Division

The purpose of this organization shall be to serve as a division of the National Federation of the Blind of New Jersey; to be a vehicle for collective action for blind senior citizens of New Jersey and of the nation; to function as a mechanism through which the blind and interested sighted persons can come together to plan and carry out programs to improve the quality of life for blind seniors; to promote the vocational, cultural, and social advancement of blind seniors; to achieve the integration of blind seniors into society on a basis of equality with the sighted; focus attention upon the problems faced by blind people who are senior citizens; and to take any other action which will improve the overall condition and standard of living of the blind. Our seniors are living the life they want!

The division conducts monthly conference calls via phone. For a schedule of monthly calls and times, please contact  President    Jane Degenshein at 973-736-5785 or  by email at jdegen16@comcast.net.

The division has held senior possibilities fairs to demonstrate the skills, techniques  and positive attitude to  move from dependence to independence. We center on the belief that obstacles can become our opportunities to  enhance our lives as blind seniors.
