The Inland Empire Lighthouse for the Blind, Inc. is a place where adults who are visually impaired can receive training to overcome the disabling effects of blindness. It’s a place where they can prepare themselves to resume a full and normal life.
Our services are available free of charge, regardless of age, race, creed, color or gender. The only qualification is that a member receiving service be legally blind and have the capability to participate in a classroom setting.
