In the last three years, the LightHouse has connected folks who are blind or low vision with each other through our novel week-long Changing Vision Changing Life Immersion Training at Enchanted Hills Retreat in Napa. Participating students have goals that range from independent living skills and learning Braille, to getting back into the workforce.
“Kate Williams, our Employment Immersion Program Leader, was able to spend some quality time with students whose vision has changed mid-career. She reinforced the idea that what you’re doing here and now in gaining your skills will get you back into the working world.” – LightHouse Director of Rehabilitation Services Kathy Abrahamson.
During our April session we did something brand-new. In addition to the wide breadth of instruction offered on our retreat site, we trained students in downtown Napa, specifically focusing on cane travel skills on city streets.
Our staff is always excited about connecting students to their path of independence and we’d love to see you in our next session which runs from Sunday, June 14 through Friday, June 19. We even have special funding for folks 55 and over who live in San Francisco, Alameda, Marin, Humboldt and Del Norte counties. But anyone who is blind or visually impaired may be eligible. Give us one week and you will change your life!
Just call or email Debbie Bacon at 415-694-7357 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We look forward to seeing you at Enchanted Hills.
