Roy Kumpe founded Lions World Services for the Blind in 1947 as a "rehabilitation center" for those who suffered visual impairment. More than 9,200 individuals have benefited from the work of the organization. Lions World Services offers its clients a "personal adjustment program, 13 vocational courses, a vision rehabilitation clinic and training, an assistive technology learning center, job placement assistance, and a college preparatory program."

The organization plans to build its $25 million dollar headquarters in downtown Little Rock near the Clinton Library and Heifer International to form a "nonprofit row."
