THE MIAMI LIGHTHOUSE FOR THE BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED INC
November 26, 2012

Our Kids of Miami-Dade/ Monroe is the lead Community-Based Care Agency for Miami-Dade & Monroe counties. We are dedicated to overseeing and leading a coordinated system of care delivering excellence to abused, abandoned and neglected children and their families. We have been working with the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and the South Florida Heiken Children's Vision Program for several years now and they have proven to be an absolutely invaluable resource to our clients. Thanks to their efforts, hundreds of at-risk youth in the Florida foster care system have received much needed vision services and eyeglasses.
The South Florida Heiken Children's Vision Program has also made a major contribution to our Independent Living Program which serves young adults who have aged out of foster care and are working to become self-sufficient. Many of these young adults do not qualify for Medicaid, making access to quality vision services very difficult. The South Florida Heiken Children's Vision Program and Miami Lighthouse for the Blind has served as the bridge to connect our young adults with much-needed vision care services, allowing them to be more successful both in school and at work. We are truly thankful for this wonderful resource which benefits the most vulnerable young people in our community.
