We operate nine facilities in four states, producing quality products with the highest standards for businesses across the nation. Every time you partner with us, you empower people with vision loss to succeed.
What began over a century ago in one woman’s living room in Kansas City has today evolved into the largest employer of people who are blind and the region’s leading provider of vision rehabilitation, education and advocacy to anyone experiencing vision loss.
