Welcome to The Inland Empire Lighthouse for the Blind! 

    Inland Empire Lighthouse for the Blind


The Inland Empire Lighthouse for the Blind, Inc. is a place where adults and children who are visually impaired can receive training to overcome the disabling effects of blindness or visual impairment.  It is a place where they can prepare themselves to resume a full and normal life.


All classes, instruction, materials, meals, transportation and referral services are provided at no charge to the totally and legally blind. The Lighthouse does not receive funds from the Federal, State, County, City, or from United Way. Our primary means of support emanates from fundraising, Wills, and Trusts.

Our blind students are most grateful to all their friends in the Inland Empire who have made our dream come true!

*The Lighthouse for the Blind is organized as a nonprofit corporation and is governed by a Board of Directors. Community leaders from Business, Industry, Labor and the Professions serve on the 18 member Board without compensation.

Message from the Executive Director, Sandy Wood:
Our Lighthouse for the Blind School may be temporarily closed, but the lights are still on! Our free services continue to be available in a variety of new ways. We are offering several zoom classes and our Learning to Live with Your Visual Impairment Support Group virtually. If you don't have internet or a computer, all you need is a phone to join in. A schedule is listed below. Each month we are making a no contact food delivery to over 60 addresses.  Our student store is available for purchases by making an appointment. Please know we are operating on a reduced work schedule.  Call the Lighthouse at (909) 884-3121 if you have any questions or just need to talk.  On behalf of the board of directors, volunteers and staff, please be assured the joyous day will come when we can welcome everyone back "home".
