Volunteers for the Blind (VFB) is a non-profit organization almost four years ago, VFB moved to Fredericksburg. This area has much more of a community of professionals who are blind. Based on what she learned during VFB’s first four years of operation, Miss Frisch thought the organization could better serve the population here and make a more meaningful contribution. VFB is a non-profit organization that works with the blind to provide needed assistance.

Miss Frisch is a member of the National Federation of the Blind, the Stafford Rotary Club and the Greater Falls Run Lions Club. She is a past president of the National Federation of the Blind of the District of Columbia and the Alexandria West End Rotary. Currently, she is the secretary of the Greater Fredericksburg Area chapter of the National Federation of the Blind of Virginia.

  • 1. VFB helps blind individuals residing in the Fredericksburg area by matching them up with reading and shopping assistants.
  • 2. Since we are not a profitable organization, we do not charge people.
  • 3. We receive our funds through donations and sales.
  • 4. VFB has an internship program that gives blind individuals an opportunity to work in an office setting.
  • 5. One important task I have my interns help with is creating our monthly newsletter.
  • 6. We’re a very closely knit family, and we are very devoted to the people we serve. In return, we have people who are very devoted to helping us.

If you would like to learn more about this organization please reach out to them.
