We serve Kentuckians who are visually impaired or blind and assist individuals in obtaining and maintaining employment, economic self-sufficiency and independence with complete integration into society.

We offer a wide variety of services designed to give those with visual disabilities the tools they need to become more independent and productive in their homes, schools, workplaces and communities. Services are consistent with an individual's strengths, abilities and interests. We also partner with business and industry, assisting employers in hiring and retaining highly qualified employees.
