Outlook Nebraska, Inc. (ONI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the mission of enhancing the quality of life of the blind and visually impaired. ONI believes that anyone can overcome vision loss and live a meaningful, productive life. Through ONI’s employment and enrichment programs, they empower individuals with skills and opportunities to meet their goals, regardless of their vision impairment.
For the last 15 years, ONI has been the largest employer of the blind and visually impaired in Nebraska. Today, while ONI continues to provide job opportunities, they also provide consultation and training on the latest adaptive technology for anyone with vision impairment in the ONI Education and Training Center. ONI trainers empower a person with limited or no vision to run a computer, smart phone or tablet, software and apps, and understand all the technology options available to them so they can excel in their professional and personal lives.
ONI focuses on providing upward mobility for their vision-impaired Associates. In addition, they are assisting seniors with vision loss who are trying to retain their current positions in the business community or seek employment. Engaging these adults and providing the use of new tools to maintain their quality of life, ONI works directly with employers to assist with valued employees who may be losing their vision. Partnering with other organizations and businesses, ONI educates the community on the amazing capacities of people who are blind and have low vision.
