Generous Donation for LightHouse North Coast

Dr. Marcus Appy (left) stands next to items he donated with LightHouse of the North Coast Social Worker Janet PomerantzMany thanks go to Dr. Marcus Appy, owner of A to Z Eyecare in Arcata, who made a generous donation of low vision equipment, including a complete assortment of Eschenbach magnifiers, assorted lighting devices, reading stands and portable electronic magnifiers. Thanks also to Jessica, Drs. Azevedo and Dr. Cole. We are very grateful for this donation, as it will allow our North Coast staff the ability to offer a more complete magnification demonstration and training with our low vision students.

The LightHouse of the North Coast is located on the third floor at the Humboldt Senior Resource Center in Eureka, with staff hours Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. While our goal is to be a community resource for support and training for adults in Humboldt and Del Norte counties, our focus, thanks to funding from the Older Individuals who are Blind program through the State of California’s Blind Field Services, has been to reach out to adults aged 55 and over.

In addition to providing solutions and training for persons with low vision, our staff also makes available training in accessible technology, orientation and mobility, independent living skills and braille. The LightHouse week-long Changing Vision Changing Life immersion training in Napa is also an opportunity for North Coast folks who are new to blindness and low vision to get valuable skills in the fresh air and beauty of Enchanted Hills Retreat.

To get started in training and find out more about our services, contact Janet Pomerantz at 707-268-5646 or email her at jpomerantz@lighthouse-sf.org.
