Mission Statement

Empowering the blind through rehabilitation, education, training, and employment.

Description

The East Texas Lighthouse for the Blind was created in 1976 as a employment resource for those who are blind. Since that time, we have expanded not only in the number of people who are blind that we employ but also in our Client Services Division that serves the blind community across 40 counties in East Texas. We have a wide range of programs and services all promoting independence and self actualization with the ultimate goal of hope and perseverance despite vision loss. Thanks to our manufacturing division Horizon Industries, most of our resource are completely free to our clients. Our vision is to remove barriers and create opportunities, and recently we've been doing that even on the national scale through our online Microsoft Office classes. From here in Tyler, we've provided one of a kind Microsoft Office/Assistive Technology Training across 8 states where over 50% of the graduates received some sort of career advancement after taking our training. Our future is bright, and we are looking for community members to join us as we empower the blind.
