Envision has always been about meeting needs. Starting in 1933, the agency began as a center for transient and homeless individuals, but also became a gathering place for men who were blind or visually impaired with no means of providing for themselves. And thus, a group of Wichita volunteers turned a need into reality with a mission of serving individuals with vision loss. Each page of our history represents the changed lives of people who, in tandem with Envision, made history on their own.
Some of our proudest accomplishments of 2023 include:
Growth in Dallas to serve the over 150,000 people in North Texas who are blind or visually impaired.
Global focus on research and innovation to remove functional barriers for people who have low vision.
Expanding our reach in rehabilitation clinic services to reach more people who need assistive technology and resources.
Diversified manufacturing opportunities to provide more jobs for people who are blind or visually impaired.
