Blind Industries and Services of Maryland
originated in 1908 as the Maryland Workshop for the
Blind (Chapter 566, Acts of 1908). It adopted its
present name in 1973 (Chapter 164, Acts of 1973).
Blind Industries and Services of Maryland is a quasi-
public, statewide agency char provides employment
services, vocational training, rehabilitation, and educa-
tion to blind and severely multi-handicapped blind
Marylanders. Its general supervision and control are
vested in eleven trustees appointed for three-year terms
by the Governor with Senate advice and consent.
The agency is open for the labor and manufac-
tures of all blind citizens of Maryland over eighteen
years of age who can give satisfactory evidence of
character and ability to do the work required. All
profits from the operation of blind industries are
used to further the agency's usefulness. Blind In-
dustries and Services of Maryland establishes and
operates centers for the training, rehabilitation, and
employment of the adult blind of Maryland. In
addition, the agency teaches adult blind persons the
day-to-day skills necessary to live in a sighted
society (Code 1957, Art. 30, sees. 3-10, 30A).
To carry out these programs, Blind Industries
and Services of Maryland operates four Divisions:
Industries, Beverage Vending, Rehabilitation, and
Services.

INDUSTRIES DIVISION
233-4567

The Industries Division provides meaningful
employment to blind and severely multi-hand-
icapped blind adults in the manufacturing of more
than a hundred products for federal and state
governments and commercial and private busi-
nesses. The Industries Division operates plants in
Baltimore, Cumberland, and Salisbury
