Independence is our vision.
We provide a variety of lifestyle changing services to people who are blind or visually impaired in the DMV to achieve their highest level of economic independence and quality of life – regardless of their ability to pay.
Our work enables people of all ages who are blind or visually impaired to remain independent, active, and productive in our society.
Serving the blind and visually impaired for over 100 years
Since 1900 Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind has been dedicated to helping the blind or visually impaired population of the greater Washington region overcome the challenges of vision loss.
