Employment Immersion Program Receives $30,000 from Wells Fargo

In January LightHouse was honored to host representatives from Wells Fargo for the presentation of a $30,000 grant to benefit our Employment Immersion Program. The grant will help 60 blind jobseekers in 2014 find gainful and satisfying employment. This gift from Wells Fargo will also be used to support the program’s outreach efforts aimed at hiring managers at top Bay Area companies, as well as cover the costs of program materials and accessible technology tools.

LightHouse CEO Bryan Bashin said, “The LightHouse is thrilled to have this strong vote of confidence by Wells Fargo in the achievements of our Employment Immersion program.  Developing a diverse workforce is something we are both committed to achieve and the tangible support we received today will make it easier to support more blind jobseekers in their journey toward full employment”
