Georgia’s Business Enterprise Program harnesses the entrepreneurial skills of people living with blindness. Edward “Eddie” Mial, Jr. is one of 75 visually impaired small-business operators who are part of the program. Most of the businesses operate in government facilities. Studies indicate that people with disabilities have a higher level of employer loyalty and rate of retention, says Robin Folsom, a spokeswoman for the Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agency, which runs the program.
People living with blindness are invited to learn more about the programs offered at SDCB. Please contact us to learn how we can help improve your life quality.
