How The San Antonio Lighthouse for the Blind and Vision Impaired impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision

Since 1933, the San Antonio Lighthouse for the Blind and Vision Impaired has been a leader in serving both the blind and vision impaired. The San Antonio Lighthouse was founded on the vision of blind individuals being educated, trained, and employed, while providing education for the greater community as well. The San Antonio Lighthouse offers a Vision Rehabilitation Center, education and training, career support, children’s education and senior programs. Every program is based on the needs and interests of each individual, from basic life skills to advanced technical skills that lead to full independence. In 2018, their rehabilitation programs provided over 12,000 services to San Antonians.
