Programs and services

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.

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 160,000 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.

Nationally, people who are blind or visually impaired face a 70% unemployment rate—which is more than 20 times the rate of unemployment for sighted Hoosiers. In multiple ways, Bosma provides opportunities for those with vision loss. Our training and employment programs prepare clients for success in the workforce. Our community employment services help to place clients in jobs, while providing support to employers. Bosma itself operates various lines of business, and is Indiana’s largest employer of workers with vision loss. More than half our workforce is blind or visually impaired. 


We help people who are blind or visually impaired learn skills that enable them to live more confidently and independently. Our Center-Based Services provide training and support at the Center for Visionary Solutions for the Blind and Visually Impaired, located in Indianapolis. Other Indiana residents (including many seniors) who prefer to receive training services in their own homes make use of our Community-Based Services.



We rely on a community of donors, volunteers and advocates to sustain our work. We invite individuals and businesses to join our mission and become partners. We also host special events throughout the year to raise awareness and build support for Hoosiers who are blind or visually impaired.


Our vision is nothing less than equality for people who are blind or visually impaired. We’re strong and vocal advocates for policies and programs that level the playing field.

We’re on a mission to create opportunities for people who are blind or visually impaired. For over a century, we’ve helped people navigate work and life with success. Learn more about who we are and what we do.
