Would You Like to Know More about LightHouse Services or Take a Tour of the New LightHouse? Talk to Esmeralda Soto, our new Information Concierge.

The LightHouse has established a new helpful point of contact when you first enter the organization. Our new Information Concierge, Esmeralda Soto, who has worked for the LightHouse for over two years, will now be available to take your questions in person or over the phone Monday through Friday.

Esmeralda is blind herself and knows about the many programs and services at the LightHouse not generally known to the community. If you have questions about LightHouse services or general questions about blindness, give Esmeralda a call. She may be able to talk with you right then and there, or she will schedule an appointment with you for a later phone or in-person conversation.

Information Concierge Hours
Monday through Friday: 9:00 a.m. to noon and 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Tour the new LightHouse offices
We’d love to show you our headquarters offices.

Designed with the abilities of blind and low vision people in mind, the new headquarters shows the latest subtle thinking about how to create a warm, welcoming and knowable space, easy to navigate and fun to work inside. The new offices feature a dedicated accessible fitness room, a blindness skills training kitchen, a blind technology demo lab and a volunteer center, all just 15 steps from a BART and MUNI station.

We have tours available without an appointment every Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. (Please sign-in by 9:45.) Or schedule an appointment with Esmeralda Soto at 415-694-7323.
