Computers for the Blind (CFTB) is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization located in Richardson, TX. We receive donations of non-longer needed computers from businesses and individuals. Our volunteers wipe the hard drives clean, refurbish the computers and install the assistive technology that make them accessible to persons who are blind or have low vision.

We ship these computers throughout the United States to persons who cannot afford a new computer and the expensive assistive technology.
