Letter from the President and CEO

Dear Friends,


Thank you for your continued support of Lighthouse for the Blind of the Palm Beaches! Serving Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties, we take great pride in reporting to you our vision services were extended to over three thousand persons who are blind or visual impaired in 2018.

Lighthouse for the Blind of the Palm Beaches assists persons with visual impairments to develop their capabilities to the fullest and to utilize them in the pursuits of life which are the right and privilege of all. This is our mission statement, which is the core of our successes on a daily basis as an organization accredited by the National Accreditation Council for Agencies Serving People with Blindness or Visual Impairment (NAC) with professionally trained, tenured and accredited staff.

With over ten programs and services including early intervention for blind babies, children vision screenings, orientation and mobility, and assistive technology training; the organization’s staff receives accolades from state and local agencies for their work, as well as the abundance of accolades from the participants who have had their lives changed by virtue of services, programs and training they have received!

Whether your support has come to Lighthouse for the Blind of the Palm Beaches by way of planned giving, memorial gifts, or annual financial contributions, we thank you and we continue to accomplish all we do while keeping our administrative costs below 10%!

Again, thank you for helping us achieve these great successes on behalf of the blind and visually impaired persons who have entrusted us with their care. You are an extension of these successes and we understand we could not achieve these results without you.
