2:00 pm: Intro to Access Technology - Online


Jul 14

What is accessible technology and how do we learn to use it? If you, a friend or family member are a person who is new to blindness or having low vision, or new to using access technology tools, this event is for you.

We’ll demonstrate how you can use mainstream tools like smartphones, voice assistants, and computers, as well as a few specialized gadgets for reading books and recording information at the touch of a button. We’ll talk about what services and resources are available for learning to use these tools, and we’ll give some tips for friends and family members who want to be supportive of the learning process.

This event will be conducted using the Zoom platform. You can connect to Zoom using a computer, an app, or by dialing in from any phone. Zoom meeting details will be provided when you RSVP. Email is the best way for us to send you the Zoom details, but if your household doesn’t have an email address yet, please share that in your RSVP so we can arrange to share the conference call information with you.

RSVP to AT@lighthouse-sf.org or by leaving a voicemail at 415-694-7368.

June 12: Using Tactile Sense for Organization and Labeling
Practice using your tactile (and other) senses to identify items, and learn ways to organize, label and mark items in your home or office. Time to raid your junk drawer, for rubber bands, safety pins, paper clips, and more...and perhaps organize that drawer in the process!

June 19: Using Tactile Sense for Games, Hobbies, and Puzzles
Please RSVP by 4pm on 6/12, to receive materials in the mail ahead of time. Learn about adapted games, how to adapt your own games with tactile markers. Participants will make their own tic-tac-toe board, and challenge themselves with a jigsaw puzzle.

June 26: Using Tactile Sense in the Kitchen
Learn several “kitchen hacks” or ways to use your tactile sense in the kitchen. Participants will make 1 or 2 simple treats that will engage their tactile sense. (Specific ingredients needed will be released, once enrolled).

July 3: Culminating Project

All questions are welcome. Stay tuned for future topics!

How Do I Sign Up: Please RSVP to Briana Kusuma at bkusuma@lighthouse-sf.org or 415-694-7335.

The Hands On Series of workshops are designed to not only provide information, but to provide hands on experience completing tasks and mastering skills. At the end of each workshop you will walk away with at least one skill that you can begin using in your life immediately. Each workshop will have a theme within the umbrella of Independent Living Skills. Themes may include; note taking, house hold projects, DIY cleaning products, make-up, household/office organization, container gardening, and meal prepping just to name a few!

Sessions will occur each Friday from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. over Zoom. Students of all backgrounds and experience levels are welcome to attend.

5:30 pm: EHC Give Back Summer Concert Series: Christina Jones (Opera singer) (online)


Jul 17

Join us for a Facebook Live concert series with marvelously talented musicians every Friday evening June 12 through August 8 at 5:30 p.m PST. Concerts benefit the life-changing programs of Enchanted Hills Camp and the installation of Chimehenge.

We are raising money for Chimehenge, an interactive community musical instrument of epic proportions. Created by the fanciful scientist designers at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, ten-foot tall chimes of various widths are suspended on a frame that make musical tones when hit with mallets.
This interactive, audible sculpture will be installed in a glen in the woods on an offshoot of the main nature trail at Enchanted Hills Camp for the Blind. Enchanting indeed!

Help us raise $25,000 for the surfacing, trail extension and installation of Chimehange for our campers who have low vision and are blind.
