Welcome to Our New Website

Welcome to the new and improved website of The Chicago Lighthouse! We are proud to unveil the revamped site as part of an overall branding campaign to highlight our expanded mission and to celebrate The Lighthouse’s 110th anniversary in 2016.

In addition to assisting individuals who are blind or visually impaired, we have broadened our services to include the disabled and Veteran communities as well.

With its innovative programs encompassing employment, education, assistive technology, vision care and many other areas, The Lighthouse has earned a reputation as a trendsetter locally, nationally and even globally.

Our extended family includes world renowned doctors and researchers; experts on assistive technology, early childhood education and services for seniors; and adults and children from all walks of life who come to us for help and discover new hope. We embody a community of care!

Now our website better reflects who we are and where we are going. I hope you will enjoy all the enhanced features including the insightful video presentations, colorful graphics and informative articles.

We are most grateful for your generous support and would appreciate your feedback.
