A high unemployment rate exists among people who are blind or low vision. It may be partially due to potential employers seeing a candidate’s disability and failing to recognize their abilities and job qualifications. Likewise, a potential employer may struggle to understand how a person who is blind or low vision performs specific job functions independently. That’s where Jobs for Humanity steps in! They train employers and connect employers with exceptional talent.
