Federation of the
Blind’s Free Cane
Program
JON SCHORSCH
Introduction
Jon Schorsch brings a Juris Doctor and years of mid-level management
experience to his work at the King County Department of Public
Defense, where he is involved in legal administration and litigation. A
former police sergeant, Jon Schorsch also volunteers as a self defense
instructor for the National Federation of the Blind.
Headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, the National Federation of the
Blind operates as a member based organization that represents blind
people in the United States. The organization, which was founded in
1940, provides a national support network that helps to raise the
expectations of the blind in addition to other services that include a
free cane initiative.
Free Cane Program
The White Cane Program provides a free cane to blind people across the
United States, regardless of their ability to pay. A symbol of
independence, the white cane fosters self-sufficiency and helps blind
people to navigate through their surroundings. Free canes can be
requested once every six months via an application form on the
National Federation of the Blind’s website. For additional information
on the program, including tips on how to measure for a cane, visit
www.nfb.org.
