Impacting People and Organizations

What does BIT mean to me?

FREEDOM!!!!! Finally, I am starting a job this October where I am able to utilize my web design skills combined with my unique perspective on web design to make a living wage worthy of my skill set. I’ve worked with other “Blind” organizations before and they all have acted as though I were from Mars because I did not fit into the predefined box they want to stuff all blind and visually impaired individuals into. On the other hand, BIT is completely different! They recognize the skills that each individual has. They will come along side and partner with you. Together, that door does not stand a chance. Together, you will kick that door completely off its hinges. That is what BIT has helped me do.

– Jeff Ritz, Another Placed Candidate

“We hired a visually impaired Blind Institute of Technology candidate and couldn’t be more pleased with his commitment, attitude and job performance.”

– Alan Cullop, CIO at DaVita Healthcare Partners

A Word from our Executive Director, Mike Hess

Funder and Sponsor Highlight

Our synergistic blend of solutions results in inclusive employment opportunities.  But we cannot achieve the mission alone. Thanks to our partners in the mission, our funders, our sponsors, our volunteers, and people like you, our vision comes more into focus every day!
