Someone you know is blind. And chances are they’ve been a visitor to the LightHouse.
Each year, the LightHouse touches the lives of thousands of people–people who have been blind their whole lives or people who are new to blindness because of eye disease or trauma. People who don’t like to talk about being blind and people who are comfortable with their disability; people who lead companies and work alongside sighted peers and people who need more training and skills to land that great job; kids who are as young as three and seniors as old as 102. Blindness crosses all communities, ages and socio-economic levels. And in a world where there may be only one blind child in a school or one blind employee in any given workplace, the LightHouse is a place where blindness is the norm, not the exception. At the LightHouse, we show people that blindness isn’t about being engulfed in darkness but simply a way of being in the world alongside countless other ways of being: tall, red-haired, brown-skinned, young, old, athletic, artistic…blind.
