Mission

To positively impact everyone who is blind or visually impaired.

We do this through adaptive technology training that helps anyone who is blind or visually impaired learn how to use a computer, navigate a mobile device, try on digital eyewear and gain independence; recreational programs that boost confidence and increase physical activity; cultural experiences that enrich the lives of the visually impaired; community education and collaborative programs that allow people to meet others with similar conditions, start conversations among loved ones and open a world of organizations that are here to help.

“I can. I will. I dare to.”

That is what Outlook Enrichment wants every blind or visually impaired person to believe. To know that there is a path to achievement. A reason to wake up every morning and be excited about the day ahead and all the possibilities that await.

Outlook Enrichment is a beacon of opportunity.

We’re bound by a restless desire to make a dramatic difference for our clients, associates, partners and communities. Determined to prove those without sight or those losing their sight are capable of working, playing and living life to the fullest.

Here, people of all ages and walks of life who are experiencing vision loss have the means to accomplish their goals. Through our technology training, cultural, recreation and education programs, those we serve learn they are capable of doing more than they ever imagined.

Here, parents, siblings, aunts, uncles and other family members of those experiencing vision loss find hope and resources to help their loved ones transition from a life of isolation to a life of fulfillment.

Here, partner agencies and community leaders are invited to collaborate with us so we can reach and empower as many people as possible.

For those who are unable to see, or see well, we want to become the first place they turn to as they navigate their journey of self-reliance and self-discovery.

We have a long way to go in changing minds and perceptions. But we won’t stop until we make it happen, because...

“We can. We will. We dare to.”

We aspire to be the first place people in our community and beyond turn to when seeking resources that empower those who are blind and those losing their sight.

We are here to provide answers, to deliver hope and to help those with vision impairments regain their confidence and live life to the fullest.

Our sister company, Outlook Nebraska, was founded in 2000 to make paper towel and toilet tissue products under the federal AbilityOne program, which creates employment and training opportunities for people who are blind or who have other severe disabilities. The National Industries for the Blind (NIB) helps state and private nonprofit agencies participate in the AbilityOne program. In 2018, NIB programs employed more than 5,400 Americans with visual disabilities. Outlook Nebraska employs more than 60 visually impaired individuals at its Omaha production facility, make it the largest employer of the blind in the region. Our employment opportunities for those with vision loss range from customer service and marketing to accounting, human resources, training, information technology and manufacturing. Our experience shows that almost any work environment can be adapted to accommodate employees with visual impairment.
