Arizona Industries for the Blind’s mission is to inspire individuals who are blind to pursue their maximum potential through creating, sustaining, and improving employment while providing the highest quality products and services.
The unemployment rate for people who are blind in Arizona and across the nation is approximately 70%. This isn’t because people who are blind aren’t capable of working. In large part, it is because employers focus on a person’s disability rather than their abilities.
You can watch AIB’s President and CEO, Chris LaFollette, and AIB’s Community and Public Relations Manager, David Steinmetz, discuss this in the video below:
