At BISM, we know first-hand that work can change a life.

Every day, we see individuals who are blind or have significant disabilities prove to themselves and others that they are more than able to fulfill their potential. In fact, we’re the largest employer of blind and low-vision individuals in the state of Maryland because we know there is much more to people than their physical disabilities.

We also welcome anyone and everyone with open arms. Whether it’s in our corporate structure, manufacturing facilities, retail businesses, or rehabilitation programs, we are always looking for talented, mission-driven individuals. We can offer competitive wages, health and retirement benefits, and growth potential at all our locations throughout Maryland, North Carolina, Kentucky, Delaware, and Washington, D.C.

We are an organization driven by our mission and guided by our Core Values.  These core values inform every decision BISM makes, how we do business, and how we treat each other.
