Free White Cane Program

We believe the long white cane is a means to independence.  The white cane has proved a useful tool to millions of blind people in navigating their environments with confidence and safety.  It is a tool which allows blind people to travel where and when they want, and as such leads to self-sufficiency.

Any blind individual in the fifty states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico may request a cane for their personal use.  Requests may be made as often as every six months. More information and a link to the application.
