At A Glance
The guiding principle of the DeafBlind Community Access Network of New Jersey, Inc. is “For DeafBlind, By DeafBlind.” This is the heart of our work. A federally recognized nonprofit, DB CAN NJ, in collaboration with the leadership and direction of DeafBlind individuals, offers training, networking, social events and opportunities for anyone interested in the DeafBlind community. Through our work, DeafBlind people may become empowered to lead more productive, independent and healthy lives, and the larger community may become more involved, informed, comfortable and connected to the DeafBlind world, and, thereby, better able to provide appropriate services and actions. We do not have membership fees or dues; our organization is funded only by donations and grants from our friends and community supporters.
