Blind Industries & Services of Maryland – Base Supply Centers: Your One Stop Shop



BISM’s AbilityOne Base Supply Centers: Your One-Stop Shop Blind Industries and Services of
Maryland (BISM) is a proud member of the AbilityOne program a federal initiative
that provides employment to blind and disabled individuals. BISM fulfills this
mission through their eight AbilityOne Base Supply Centers on military
installations, which sell office products, cleaning supplies, and uniforms to base
personnel. Our blind associates perform a variety of job duties at each BSC,
including management, customer service, inventory, and deliveries. We provide
assistive technology to ensure that associates are able to succeed in any
given task. The revenue generated from the BSCs help fund BISM's blindness
skills training programs, in particular the Work to Independence and
Independence 101 summer residential programs for blind middle and high
school students. Students in the summer and Adult CORE training programs job
shadow at the BSCs, and experience how a blind person is able to work
independently. the BSCs offer a wide variety of quality
products, in particular the Skilcraft brand, which are produced by blind and
disabled people working for organizations similar to BISM. Each
BSC is open during normal business hours. You can reach our BSCs via phone, fax, or
email and you can place an order, track your delivery, or ask questions about
products. For a listing of our BSC locations and their contact information
