Janice Gets Her Groove Back

Janice finds that coming to the LightHouse each week offers a way to get her “creative groove” back by taking advantage of some of the many classes offered by LightHouse Community Services that enliven and enrich people’s lives. She loves to craft with the LightHouse Beanies for Babies knitting group and de-stresses at our weekly yoga class.

“Orientation and Mobility training (O&M) is liberating to the individual who does not want to be boxed in and it opens the door to a more independent life. It has freed me from being a prisoner in my house. I don’t have to be home on weekends and stick to my old routines. I don’t have to be afraid to get out.” – Ruth Welland

Read what else Ruth has to say about her training at the LightHouse.
