Our Mission

We provide visionary solutions for the blind and visually impaired.


Bosma Enterprises is a nonprofit organization that’s been helping Hoosiers with blindness and visual impairment for more than 100 years.
 
Our experienced staff (more than half of whom have low vision) offers personalized programs ranging from counseling, to job placement, to training for daily living, helping adults gain the life skills they need to remain independent, and the job skills they need to stay self-sufficient.

Whether you’re here to give help or get help, we’re glad to have you.
