Envision's Dallas facility renovation to begin after $2M grant – The Business Journals


Wichita-based Envision Inc. said this week that it will begin renovations in the next few months of a facility for its Dallas center that serves north Texas blind and low-vision residents.
The nonprofit has received a $2 million challenge grant from the J.E. & L.E. Mabee Foundation, part of an overall $15 million capital campaign that will move Envision Dallas operations to a renovated 210,000 square-foot facility in Farmers Branch, a northern suburb.
Envision Dallas said it must raise more than $6.7 million by next October to receive the Mabee Foundation grant.
“The support of Envision Dallas is inspiring, and we are eager about the growth and the opportunities we will be able to provide for many people in North Texas,” Envision president and CEO Michael Monteferrante said in a statement.
Envision acquired the former Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind in 2018 and renamed it Envision Dallas. The Dallas facility employs nearly 150 people who are blind or have low vision, and provides services for more than 3,000 people.
