IFB Solutions started out in 1936 as Winston-Salem Industries for the Blind, a two-room shop with six blind workers.
Initial support from the local Lion’s Club and Goodwill Industries helped establish IFB Solutions Winston-Salem as one of the nation’s largest sites employing people who are blind or visually impaired.
Today, IFB Solutions employs over 200 people. Employees manage field operations for more than 25 optical dispensaries in VA hospitals and more than 20 Base Supply Centers on military bases and in federal office buildings. IFB Solutions’ 120,000-square-foot, ISO 9001:2008-certified facility offers nationally recognized high-tech optical services.

- Facilities for sewing, assembling and packaging products such as mattresses, apparel, bags and harnesses
- An optical center, repair lab and retail eyeglass store
- A Community Low Vision Center and retail store for low-vision products
- Tracy’s Little Red Schoolhouse and TAD’s room, a 45,000-square-foot meeting space, where children and adults who are blind or visually impaired learn independent living and job skills
