Established in 2000, Outlook Nebraska, Inc.’s mission is to enhance the quality of life of the blind and visually impaired. This mission stems from our desire to overcome the challenges the blind and visually impaired experience in finding gainful employment. We achieve this mission through many means, but our primary service is employment, which is provided to the blind and visually impaired in an Omaha-based converting operation that supplies a full line of 100 percent recycled fiber content tissue and towel products to the U.S. Government and other customers. The largest employer of the blind and visually impaired in Nebraska and the only agency of its kind in a seven-state region, ONI offers additional services for its associates, including social activities, education, technology and adaptive aids training, and health and wellness programs.
The vision of ONI is to be the premier provider of choice for exceptional employment, training, and experiences that allow the blind and visually impaired to realize their personal and career goals.
