Programs and Services

Seventy percent. That’s a big number. That is the unemployment rate of people who are blind or visually impaired. That’s the reason one of our top priorities is providing comprehensive employment and rehabilitation programs that create opportunities. We offer both onsite and in-home rehabilitation programs. These programs create independence, self-sufficiency, self-confidence and freedom for people with vision loss.

One of our top priorities is reducing the staggering unemployment rate for people who are blind or visually impaired. We create job opportunities through training programs and placements with Indiana employers, but we’ve also set up our organization as a source of employment for people with vision loss.

people who are blind or visually impaired

We exist to create opportunities for Hoosiers who are blind or visually impaired. There are about 165,000 people in Indiana who are experiencing vision loss. Currently, we serve 1,500 annually with life-changing services and critical information on coping with the loss of eyesight. We want to show that life doesn’t end with vision loss and we can help navigate blindness.
