What is A Social Enterprise?

Organizations that address a basic unmet need or solve a social problem

through a market-driven approach.

*Definition provided by the Social Enterprise Alliance


We invest in our community and the people we employ- helping transform their lives and improving your business.

Olmsted Center for Sight, established in 1907, operates a social enterprise that provides competitive employment for people who are blind or visually impaired.  All profits from the enterprise are reinvested back into the employees or focused on creating additional employment opportunities

Our staff provides high quality and cost-competitive products and services to commercial, New York State and Federal government customers. All of our work is obtained through a competitive market-driven process.

Olmsted Center for Sight employs over 100 individuals, and 75% of the direct product and service labor is provided by people who are blind or visually impaired. We have learned that by making simple technical or physical accommodations to how work is performed, we can reap the benefits of this very talented and dedicated workforce.  Our employees who are blind work side by side and on-par with their sighted counterparts.

You don’t have to sacrifice quality or competitive pricing when you choose to purchase our products or services; you just have to choose to want to change lives.
