Putting People to Work

Seventy percent. That’s a big number. It’s the current unemployment rate for people who are blind or visually impaired. And it’s the reason why creating job opportunities is one of our top priorities.

Financial stability. Sense of purpose. Renewed self-confidence. That’s what a job can do for someone who is blind or visually impaired. But the benefits go much deeper. For our communities, it’s the opportunity to access a capable and eager talent pool, and it’s the chance to build a strong, diversified workforce. Creating employment for people who are blind or visually impaired changes lives – and communities – for the better.

We’re creating employment through a range of services and programs.

Local Employment Services

We work with both job-seekers and employers to create employment opportunities. We offer job training for people who are blind or visually impaired, along with vocational skills and career coaching. We also work with local businesses to create job opportunities, and we help companies prepare to employ a person who is blind or visually impaired.
