Seniors Program Chicago – Over-The-Phone Low Vision Support Group – The Census

For the health and well-being of our clients during COVID -19, The Chicago Lighthouse has temporarily suspended in-person seniors programs. We will let you know when we resume in-person programming. For now, all seniors programs will take place over the phone in the comfort of your homes until further notice.

Please direct all program inquiries and RSVPs to Melissa Wittenberg at T: (847) 510-2060 or

CALL-IN INSTRUCTIONS: After you RSVP for any/all programs that you’d like to participate in, here’s how to call into each of the programs – we will use the same call-in number for all programs: To join any of the programs on, dial 312-229-4730. It will then ask for you to enter the Conference ID: 362327 followed by #. It will ask if you are the leader and since you are not the leader, continue waiting and it will then ask you to say your name, and once you do, press #. You will then be admitted into the program.

During today’s support group, you will learn about the importance of the U.S. Census! As the 2020 U.S. Census gets underway, The Lighthouse is making a concerted effort to ensure people with disabilities are fully counted. Accurate Census data determines how hundreds of billions of dollars are allocated across the U.S. By participating in the Census, people with disabilities can ensure the federal programs they need the most, such as health care services, public accessibility and more, are adequately funded. During this session, you have the chance to speak with our U.S. Census Outreach workers who will answer questions & assist you in responding to the U.S. Census online. Please RSVP to Melissa at: (847) 510-2060.
