Envision’s mission is to improve the quality of life and provide inspiration and opportunity for people who are blind or visually impaired through employment, outreach, rehabilitation, education and research. Founded in 1933 in Wichita, Kansas, Envision is one of the largest employers in the nation of individuals who are blind or visually impaired. Envision has locations in 11 states. Envision offers low vision rehabilitation to all ages regardless of ability to pay (Bicknell Envision Vision Rehabilitation Center), low vision research (Gigi & Carl Allen Envision Research Institute), youth and adult support groups and programs, early childhood education (Cathy G. Hudson Envision Child Development Center) and public and professional education (Envision University). Envision’s newest initiative in partnership with LC Industries in Durham, N.C. is the William L. Hudson BVI Workforce Innovation Center (www.workforceforall.com). Fundraising through the Envision Foundation ensures the sustainability and continuation of programs and services for individuals with vision loss.
