Providing the Word of God free of charge to people who are blind or visually impaired has been the focus of Lutheran Braille Workers since it was founded in 1943. The work has grown from producing titles in a single language to 30 languages, and the volunteer workforce has grown from one volunteer working out of a shoebox in her home to more than 3000 volunteers in about 170 work centers across the United States!
