Eye-Link, North Dakota, an all-volunteer non-profit 501c3, was founded in October, 2015. This charity is responding to the unmet special adaptive technology needs of hundreds of North Dakotans who are either Blind or struggling with severe visual impairment. Eye-Links’ mission and sole purpose is to provide people experiencing uncorrectable sight loss, through grant applications, highly specialized assistive technologies and any associated training. Acquiring access to all forms of information is a life altering experience for technology grant recipients. Receiving this highly specialized equipment immediately strengthens their independence and develops self-sufficiency, which can enable them to become more productive and prepare them for meaningful employment. The current estimate of Blind unemployment in North Dakota is approximately 70 percent!
