Seventy percent. That’s is the unemployment rate of people who are blind or visually impaired. That is what makes our programs so vital to people who are blind or visually impaired. Funds from the Bosma Visionary Opportunities Foundation and our lines of business allow us to provide high-quality serves at little to no cost to the clients. We provide comprehensive employment and rehabilitation programs that create opportunities for people experiencing vision loss to live full lives. We offer both onsite and in-home rehabilitation programs. These programs create independence, self-sufficiency, self-confidence and freedom for people with vision loss.

employment

One of our top priorities is reducing the staggering 70 percent 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. The sale of our quality products creates hundreds of jobs and training opportunities for jobs within other companies in the community.

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 more than 1,000 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.
