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. 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.
