Employment Immersion Program

The Employment Immersion Program is a multi-week course empowering those who are blind or have low vision to assess their skills and interests and find success and satisfaction in the job market.

Enchanted Hills Camp

Founded in 1950 by Rose Resnick, Enchanted Hills now holds not only our annual summer camp sessions, but also hosts classes, workshops, retreats and seminars in a beautiful setting high atop Napa’s Mount Veeder.

Deaf-blind Program

The Deaf-blind Program provides training, resources and support to persons who are both vision and hearing impaired. The goal of the program is to ensure that deaf-blind individuals have access to information and the skills needed to live independent and productive lives. As part of this goal, the LightHouse operates the FCC program to ensure deaf-blind individuals receive free equipment and training to suit their needs.

Youth Programs

The LightHouse offers a diverse array of outings, social events, and personal/professional development opportunities for young adult and high school-aged youth.

Community Services

On a weekly basis we provide outings, classes, recreational activities and events for blind people of all ages to learn, connect and thrive.

Counseling and Psychological Services

The LightHouse offers counseling for those affected by blindness or low vision by an experienced team of licensed professionals.

Low Vision Clinic

Part of finding successful solutions is assessing your visual levels and needs. The LightHouse, in partnership with the UC Berkeley School of Optometry, offers low vision examinations each week.
