For nearly a century, Miami Lighthouse for the Blind has been working to build a more inclusive society for the blind and visually impaired. Our innovative programming removes barriers to education, jobs and critical eye care and unlocks the power of the internet and technology. No one's potential should be defined by ability, age, zip code, income, race or ethnicity.
Our program offerings reflect the diversity of the communities we serve and their unique needs. Approximately 90% of the constituents we serve are low income from underserved populations. Through our Florida Heiken Children's Vision Program, we ensure Title 1 students can access the eye care they need to succeed in the classroom and later, in the workforce. Miami Lighthouse annually transforms the lives of 90,000 blind and visually impaired people, babies to seniors, and their families. The impact of our programs is statewide, national, and international.
