I was former client in the transition program at the Lighthouse Central Florida. The skills I learned in the transition program that helped me become more independent and to develope a resume and interview skills. The combination of the skills has helped secure a job at Disney, and I attend classes regular at the University of Central Florida. I very thankful for the skills and training I received from the Lighthouse, in an effort to give back to the transition program I mentor on occassion at their events in the community and during their summer program at UCF.

My son, Joe, (who is blind due to extreme prematurity) and our family have been clients off and on since 1984. This organization saved our family's life and has greatly benefitted Joe over the decades. I have had the privilege of serving as LCF's CEO for 10 years now. I am very proud of the work the LCF Team (board members, staff, volunteers, investors and donors) has accomplished; humbled by the courage of LCF clients and the generosity of our supporters; and finally, compelled by what we have left to accomplish over the next decade. This is an awesome organization.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

greatly expand to serve many more sight-impaired children and adults, create job opportunities for sight-impaired adults of all ages and business enterprises employing people with blindness to generate revenue for the organization.

When I became active as a client with Lighthose Central Florida in January 2004, I was a student in the lifeskills class. Besides learning to adjust to my visual limitations, the class was given a sense of hope and and that life does go on. Besides skills of mobility, we were also given methods to meet the challenges of regular household skills. I have continued to volunteer my time in the area of public awareness and fundraising. Since 2008, I have given my time as a teachers aide 2 days a week. My greatest joy is to see the growth in hope and the deminishment of depression in the graduates. In November 2009, I joined the Lighthouse Central Florida Board of Directors. I'm looking forward to being even more active and supportive in this organization.

My experience volunteering for the Lighthouse Central FLorida was very rewarding.The staff are definitely dedicated and great to learn from. I helped lead an adolescent group on a three day wilderness trip. That was also rewarding. The kids could not stop talking about it. I am really happy to have worked with the staff, adolescents and organization.

My ex-wife is visually impaired and was a client of Lighthouse. I met several of the staff and volunteers and instantly felt at home. Also worked part time driving students to and from class and setting up computers for veterans. Everyone associated with LCF are top-notch professionals but are also just good, down-to-people. The people that they serve are given the tools needed to live in our "sighted" world and do this all with a smile on their face!

I was working at Bennigans when they closed there doors for good. I was told about Lighthouse Central Florida's supported employment program. I met with the staff from Supported Employment, my first job was wrapping silverware, I wasn't very fast, so I was let go. The next job I was told about was in 2004 working in a Dry Cleaners plant, sorting laudnry bags for both laundry and dry cleaning going back to the 21 stores throughout Central Florida and I also sort hangers to be reused. I love my job and my employer. Recently I was cut back to three days a week from 5 days a week.

The staff is outstanding in this company, they don't look at you as a disable blind person, they see your abilities and focus on your abilities. The staff can be called on at any time day or night, with any type of problem. They listen to you.
