Mission Statement

The mission of the Lighthouse is to educate, empower, and employ people who are visually impaired and blind. We have provided residents of Pasco, Hernando and Citrus Counties with no cost vision rehabilitation for over 30 years. Our programs and services develop the independent living skills needed so people who are visually impaired and blind can live happy, independent, and successful lives.

Description

The Lighthouse for the Visually Impaired and Blind is a non-profit agency that provides services at no cost to people who are visually impaired and blind of all ages and to their families.

The Lighthouse receives partial funding from the Florida Division of Blind Services, the United Ways of Pasco and Hernando Counties, and Pasco County Commissioners. Private donations and the efforts of volunteers help us provide our services to more people. We need volunteers to help us in many ways.

If you are interested in one of our opportunities, you can download an application form from our website at https://www.lvib.org/get-involved/volunteer/ or you can contact us directly through VolunteerMatch. We hope to have you as a volunteer!

Please note, most volunteering is done within business hours which are Monday to Thursday 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM.
