Someone in the US permanently loses their vision every 7 minutes. In Wisconsin alone, up to 200,000 residents face visual impairments, and, by 2030, age-related blindness cases are expected to double. This is a community that is all too often wrongly told that they need to “rethink” their life aspirations. The narrative on abilities in the workplace is progressing more and more every year and Beyond Vision is proud to be one of the leading organizations challenging these old ideas. There is still so much work to be done, because roughly 7 out of every 10 adults who are legally blind are unemployed. Nevertheless, Beyond Vision is one of only two organizations in Wisconsin with the sole mission of providing employment for professionals who are visually impaired.


Beyond Vision’s employment opportunities are a lifeline for many professionals who are visually impaired, and we need your support! Each year, we estimate more than 2,500 total combined hours of training provided for our employees, growing skills like computer literacy, machining, servant leadership, customer service, management, and so much more. We are not just a place for those who face the challenges of blindness to earn a paycheck, we are a place that empowers people to reach their full potential by focusing on their abilities, not their disabilities. Our programs are working for all 118 of our staff, more than 53% of whom are visually impaired. Last year alone, this was proven in the form of 8 promotions earned, 60 raises in compensation earned, and countless more staff taking off in our runway of success, beginning fantastic new careers with other organizations!


Beyond Vision has been proud to do this work for 120 years!

We need your support to continue this work long into the future!
