A not-for-profit corporation serving the needs of blind and visually impaired persons.  We seek to meet the needs of our citizens to enable them to be independent, contributing members of their community; understanding that the social and emotional costs of loss of independence are even higher than the economic cost of dependency.

The mission of the agency is to provide a community based focal point which makes a difference in the lives of blind and visually impaired persons by providing vital skills which help increase employment, independence, productivity and quality of life.



BSS is a consumer based agency with a Board of Directors, staff and volunteers comprised primarily of persons with visual impairment who serve as role models and leaders.
