COVID-19 UPDATE - MARCH 23, 2020

Bosma Enterprises continues to monitor and respond to the COVID-19 situation, including guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), along with state and county health departments.

 

Given recent developments and executive order from Gov. Holcomb, we have made the decision to cancel all programs through April 7. Additional updates include:

 

- All facilities closed to outside visitors 

-No business travel 

-Remote work for authorized employees

 

Product fulfillment and contract packaging operations – including ordering, packing and shipping of medical and health/safety products – remain open to ensure our veterans and healthcare professionals are served and protected.

 

As of today, glove volumes are at normal stocking levels and we are continuing to process and ship orders without interruption to our VA and State Use customers.

 

To ensure the safety and integrity of the supply chain, Bosma Enterprises is implementing a provision in our pre-established business continuity plan. Effective immediately, we have instituted an allocation for our Prime Vendor, VA and Indiana State Use customers for exam gloves. This allocation is based on a customer's average monthly purchase, by product, over the past 12 months.

 

Additionally, we are unable to accept orders from resellers/distributors until further notice. Regretfully, we cannot accept any new customers at this time.

 

Our top priority is the health and safety of our employees, their families, those whom we serve and with whom we interact. We will continue providing updates as new information becomes available.

Please be safe, and we look forward to seeing you soon.

 

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 members (more than half of whom have low vision) offer 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.
 


 

About Bosma Programs Get involved

How We Help

Bosma Enterprises is Indiana’s largest employer of workers with vision loss. Our production facility—staffed almost entirely by people who are blind or visually impaired—packs, ships and warehouses a variety of products. As well as enabling our workers to support themselves, the proceeds from our lines of business help to fund our operations.

Additionally, at little or no cost to clients, we provide tools and training that help adults throughout Indiana overcome the barriers of blindness and visual impairment. Some obtain services at our Center for Visionary Solutions for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Indianapolis. Others choose to receive training in the comfort of their own homes and communities. Those seeking employment utilize our community employment services. Learn more about these and other Bosma assistance programs now.
