New Jersey Association of DeafBlind (NJADB)

The New Jersey Association of DeafBlind (NJADB) 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 New Jersey 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.

The Division conducts conference calls via phone bi-monthly. For a schedule of calls and times, please contact President Alice Eaddy at 856-765-0601 or email

White Cane Awareness Day: teach the world about what the white cane means to blind people

White canes help blind people live the lives we want. The white cane does more than tell the sighted that we’re blind; it is a tool for freedom and self-determination because it allows blind people to come and go on our own. Since we can travel safely and independently, we can contribute in the workplace, in our communities, and in society. Celebrate White Cane Awareness Day on October 15 by giving the gift of independence. To learn more, please visit If you wish to make a donation during White Cane Day, please visit
