Mission & Purpose

To empower people who are blind and visually impaired to be self-sufficient and full participants in their communities. In addition to serving over 1000 individuals annually, Clovernook is one of North America’s largest volume producers of Braille materials. We manufacture specialized files folders and biodegradable paper hot cups, and we perform contract packaging and assembly work for a variety of customers.


All services are available throughout the Greater Cincinnati Metropolitan Area, including Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana. Services are individualized to meet each person’s specific needs and interests.

Community Living Services: Instruction, case management, adaptive equipment, training and support to help people maintain independence in their homes and communities.

Arts and Recreation: A full, well-rounded life includes the pursuit of favorite recreational and social activities. Clovernook offers a wide range of classes and activities designed to help people continue or return to their favorite activities, as well as learn about new leisure activities.

Community Employment Services: Helps people find competitive employment. Clovernook employment specialists evaluate a person’s skills, interests, experience, and goals. Staff assists the person with his or her job search and works closely with employers to assure successful employment outcomes.

Work Adjustment Services: Clovernook provides work adjustment services to help people with developmental disabilities and visual impairments improve their work skills and prepare for community employment or other vocational goals.

Industries Program: On-site manufacturing, assembly, packaging and other competitive job opportunities for people who are legally blind.

Youth Services: The academic instruction students receive in school rarely includes the practical day-to-day life skills necessary to thrive in employment and social situations. Summer day camp programs and year-round activities include arts and recreation,
technology and daily living skills training provided in a fun environment.

Transition Services: Through a collaborative effort with Ohio State School for the Blind, Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired and other partners statewide, Clovernook serves youth ages 14-22 and adults to age 30 who are making the transition from high school to work, college, technical school and other specialized services.


Individuals served typically have a visual impairment that affects some aspect of independent functioning and demonstrate the ability to actively participate in services. Some specific programs may have additional criteria for acceptance.
