Mission Statement

Mission Statement The mission of World Services for the Blind is to empower people who are blind or visually impaired to achieve sustainable independence. WSB meets students where they are and provides them with the tools they need to reach their individual goals, from living independently to learning the skills necessary to enter or re-enter today’s highly competitive, global workforce.

Description

WSB was founded in Little Rock in 1947 through the initiative of several civic leaders and the statewide network of Lions Clubs.

Independence means different things to different people. WSB’s programs are designed to give students the tools they need to lead the independent lives they envision for themselves.

WSB has proven adept at adjusting to a continuously changing environment. We have embraced improvements in technology, new methods for educating and training people who are blind, new models of partnering with organizations in hometown communities to provide comprehensive blindness skills and to deliver on-line career and vocational training. Additionally, WSB was the only residential center in the US serving people who are blind to remain open and continue to accept clients during the COVID crisis.

WSB will strengthen and continue to grow capacities for the residential program at the Fair Park campus because many people suffering from the consequences of vision loss do not have access to quality programs and services in their hometowns.
