Mission Statement

Empowering people with vision loss to achieve their goals and aspirations.

Description

In 1911, Kansas City Association for the Blind was founded to provide employment for blind individuals in Kansas City. Renamed Alphapointe in 1993, the agency serves over 5,000 visually impaired individuals with employment opportunities, educational and rehabilitation services.

Employment of blind individuals is the major focus of Alphapointe. Graduates of Alphapointe's Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services seek employment in the community, at the Life Skills Campus, the Base Service Centers at Little Rock AFB, Arkansas and Ft.Leonard Wood Military Base, Missouri, and switchboard operations within the region. All education and training at Alphapointe centers on promoting self sufficiency through work, life, and social skills training for visually impaired individuals.
