The Lighthouse for the Blind, Inc. is a private, not-for-profit agency providing employment, support, and training opportunities for people who are blind, Deaf-Blind, and blind with other disabilities. The Lighthouse has provided employment and support to blind people in our community since 1918.

The Lighthouse for the Blind, Inc. currently employs approximately 200 individuals who are blind, Deaf-Blind, and blind with other disabilities throughout the organization. We are a successful manufacturing organization that is committed to making jobs accessible to blind individuals. Our manufacturing operations center on making quality products for the federal government and The Boeing Company. Employment opportunities at the Lighthouse also include positions in production, customer service, accounting, injection mold, computer instruction, information technology, program management, administration, departmental supervision, and human resources.

We also have outreach and educational programs for the community at large, including our nationally acclaimed Deaf-Blind retreats and community classes as well as a local school program to educate elementary school students about blindness and deaf-blindness.

Our philosophy maintains that each employee be provided with whatever supports are necessary for success in the workplace. Supports include an in-house sign language interpreting department to ensure effective communication for Deaf-Blind employees, staff mobility instructors to teach independent travel with a white cane or dog guide, and over 100 computer workstations adapted for use by visually impaired individuals.
