ABOUT THE B.V.A - ARIZONA CENTRAL/NORTHERN REGIONAL GROUP
Welcome to the B.V.A.!
The Blinded Veterans Association was awarded a Congressional Charter in 1958 to represent America’s blinded veterans in national legislative concerns. This crucial advocacy has expanded, and continues, thanks to the dedication of National Officers and Directors, committed and involved members, and Regional Group leaders.
Your B.V.A. provides a wide range of related services, technological updates, national news regarding vision loss, informative speakers, and social events. The Arizona - Central / Northern Regional Group encourages and supports all visually impaired individuals who have served in the U.S. military from World War II through the current Desert Storm (OEF / OIF) veterans. We’ve got your six.
“To promote the welfare of blinded veterans so that, notwithstanding their disabilities, they may take their rightful place in the community and work with their fellow citizens toward the creation of a peaceful world.
“To preserve and strengthen a spirit of fellowship among blinded veterans so that they may give mutual aid and assistance to one another.
“To maintain and extend the institution of American freedom and encourage loyalty to the Constitution and laws of the United States and of the states in which they reside.”
Our purpose is to help blinded Arizona veterans, their families and friends meet, organize, and overcome challenges faced with vision loss. No veteran, family member or friend is alone in this endeavor. We are here to serve and honor fellow Arizona veterans on their path to independence and purpose.
