The Lighthouse of Houston offers a variety of programs for youth and adults who are blind or visually impaired. Our programs are structured to increase the quality of life and experiences through establishing community independence and develop community for the blind. Lighthouse programs provide services that identify and develop the individual strengths and needs of each person with visual disabilities so they may reach their full emotional, social and educational potential.
Multi-Care is a licensed adult day program for individuals ages 18 and up who are blind or visually impaired. The program has an Activity Director and is focused on enhancing the client's quality of life and independence through participation in activities including arts and crafts, swimming, exercise, games, pet therapy and music. Health supervision is provided by a Registered Nurse who monitors diet, vital signs and medication management.
Summer day camp programs, parents' night out, and swim lessons provide opportunities for blind and visually impaired children to participate in recreational activities in a safe and supportive environment with positive experiences that stimulate their development, growth and independence.
