Lighthouse of Houston Board of Directors, Leadership, Management and Employees are all committed to the mission of the organization. The mission is to assist and provide individuals who are blind or visually impaired to be independent members of society.
Since 1939, the Lighthouse of Houston Leadership has been offering comprehensive training, health and community programs, and services for individuals and families throughout the Greater Houston area.
The Lighthouse of Houston executes all operations and projects under the guiding principles of LIGHT: Leadership, Integrity, Giving, Helpfulness, and Teamwork. These values are fundamental to the organization. They provide the basis for our interactions with prospective and current partners, clients, volunteers, and employees. As these principles are essential to all Lighthouse work, they will provide a foundation and a lens through which all projects will be realized.
"Thank you for your interest in the Lighthouse of Houston and in the agency’s mission to improve the lives of blind and visually impaired individuals and their families. The Lighthouse of Houston has an established reputation for providing meaningful and comprehensive services aimed at maximizing functional independence, enhancing quality of life, and improving employment opportunities for the thousands of blind and visually impaired children and adults we serve every year.
As our population ages, individuals in our community become more at risk of developing visual impairments, especially as a result of macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. These individuals will face visual impairment that threatens to erode their independence and quality of life, just like the generations before them. The need to provide education, counseling, care and advocacy remains as critical today as it was 80 years ago when the Lighthouse first opened its doors. Please join us in our mission and see why the Lighthouse of Houston is a model agency for service provision and advocacy."
