Our mission is to educate and empower those affected by vision loss so they may enjoy happy, healthy and independent lives.
Lighthouse Vision Loss Education Center is the only nonprofit agency providing no-cost rehabilitation training to blind and visually impaired individuals of all ages in five counties. The counties we service include: Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, DeSoto and Highlands. The Lighthouse provides training in skills that promote self-sufficiency and independence in the lives of individuals who have vision loss. Training varies from in-home instruction to facility-based classroom sessions in white cane, assistive technology, vocational rehabilitation and independent living skills.
