A Little About Us
Computers for the Blind (CFTB) is a Non-Profit, volunteer organization devoted to providing computers to persons who are blind or visually impaired.

He graduated from High School, then continued until he earned a Doctorate's Degree in Vocational Rehabilitation. Later in life, Bob received his first computer and discovered how computers could overcome many obstacles. He wanted to share this gift with others and started what would become Computers for the Blind.
