The Blinded Veterans Association (BVA), founded in 1945, promotes the welfare of blind and visually impaired veterans. BVA helps veterans become oriented and readjusted to blindness and obtain vocational training, informs them of benefits and of the latest technical aids and developments in the field, and represents them at the national level. A field service program provides counseling to blinded and visually impaired veterans regarding their rights; explains benefits available from Federal, State, and local agencies; and provides assistance in obtaining benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). BVA's hours of operation are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and voice mail is available 24 hours.There are 53 regional groups.
