Lighthouse Unveils 2015 Annual Report: A Community of Care
“A Community of Care” is the theme of The Chicago Lighthouse’s 2015 Annual Report. The report captures the recent life-changing experiences individuals who are blind, visually impaired, disabled and Veterans have discovered at The Lighthouse. These experiences have been shaped by the 110-year-old organization’s innovative programs in education, rehabilitation, employment, vision care and other areas.
Among members of our community of care who are profiled in the report are Alison Dalton, a violinist with the internationally acclaimed Chicago Symphony Orchestra, whose outstanding career was almost cut short due to a visual disorder. Thanks to help she received from The Lighthouse, however, Alison is still able to perform beautiful music. Michael Smith, a Veteran who served in the U.S. Navy, and Kimberly Duhart, who is physically disabled, also found new hope thanks to rewarding employment opportunities in The Lighthouse’s call centers. There are hundreds more!
In an era of shrinking governmental resources, it is more important than ever for non-profit organizations like The Lighthouse to maintain a thriving community of care for the people we serve.
Our annual report celebrates the fact that through this collaborative effort, we are creating a better today and a brighter future!
