Mission: Empowering people living with vision loss with the skills and tools to achieve their goals.
Outlook Enrichment is a private nonprofit rehabilitation agency for the blind and visually impaired. We provide a wide range of services to meet our community's unique needs of individuals living with vision loss.
Did you know?
Vision loss is more significant than people realize.
- In Nebraska, more than 35,000 people report blindness or severe difficulty seeing even with glasses.
- More than 15,000 people in the Omaha metropolitan community live with significant vision loss.
- According to data available through the U.S. Office of Special Education and Rehabilitation, 800 to 870 youth with vision loss are enrolled annually in special education programs across Nebraska. At present, 103 of these students qualify as having dual sensory loss, meaning they have multiple disabilities?
Outlook Enrichment's services as a whole focus on the individuals we serve and the community in which they live. Our goal is to provide support and guidance through the vision loss journey.
The Enrichment team assesses all factors in a person’s life to determine possible beneficial services. Through a holistic approach, we examine our consumers through many lenses, including the type and onset of vision loss, skill sets, family dynamics, culture, and much more. This approach helps us ensure Outlook Enrichment’s participants are capable and prepared for every aspect of life.
This “person-centered” approach considers the physical, emotional, community, and spiritual well-being of a consumer. We focus on personal goals, needs, and provide a comprehensive rehabilitation training plan to find long-term solutions.
