Directory Center Help

The Directory Center is divided into the following seven sections:

Home

In this section you will see all the addresses and telephone numbers associated with your agency's record and links to your various listings on AFB's websites:

  • Your AFB Directory of Services listing is your profile on AFB's main website (www.afb.org). This profile includes general information about your agency and a description of all the services you offer for all age groups as well as any events, announcement or job postings you post.
  • Your FamilyConnect listing is your profile on FamilyConnect (www.FamilyConnect.org), a website for families of children with visual impairments and their families created by AFB with the National Association for Parents of Children with Visual Impairments (NAPVI). This profile includes general information about your agency and a description of the services you offer for children with visual impairments and their families.
  • Your VisionAware listing is your profile on VisionAware (www.VisionAware.org), a website for adults and seniors with visual impairments.
