About ShopBISM – “Every Purchase Creates Jobs for Blind Americans”
At ShopBISM our mission is to create employment opportunities for people who are blind and severely disabled. To that end we are committed to providing top quality products and services that create simple solutions and enhance work environments in a positive way.
Seven out of ten working-age Americans who are blind are unemployed. Our mission is to change that. Your purchases through our Ecommerce Web Site can help create jobs for blind adults and lower the unemployment rate
Owned and operated by Blind Industries and Services of Maryland (BISM) we also operate eight brick-n-mortar stores through our AbilityOne Base Supply Centers.
