Thank You for Making the

Lighthouse Possible!

Become a beacon of hope by donating to the Inland Empire Lighthouse for the Blind. Your gift will make a life-changing difference for a person who is blind or significantly visually impaired.

We greatly appreciate individuals, corporations, and foundations who support our mission of providing life-changing assistance to individuals who are legally and totally blind so that they can achieve their highest level of self-sufficiency, consistent with their specific skills, general abilities and interests.  A gift to the Inland Empire Lighthouse for the Blind plays a vital and significant role in providing people who are visually challenged with renewed self-esteem and practical, essential training and work skills. This allows them to participate in all types of daily activities.

Teaching a new way to do a familiar task or teaching a new skill particularly tailored for the needs of a sight-impaired person are what our skilled and dedicated staff do.  All programs and services are provided at no charge to persons who are blind or visually impaired.  The Lighthouse does not receive funds from the Federal, State, County, City, or the United Way. Our primary means of support emanates from Wills and Trusts, and your generous Donations!

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".
