“Working at CLB has truly transformed my life in remarkable ways.”
Working at CLB has truly transformed my life in remarkable ways. While I was already fairly independent, my time here has seen me become even more self-reliant. My confidence has soared, and as a father, I now feel an increased sense of security, knowing that my son can look up to me as a working parent rather than seeing me idle due to unemployment.
“I am excited about obtaining employment.”
I’m excited about obtaining employment. This position allows me to have extra income and will aide in supporting my family in Ethiopia. I will forever be thankful for all of the job readiness training and support that I have received from Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind. I appreciate your determination in showing me I can do it!
“Employment with CLB has given me great pleasure of still having independence.”
Employment with CLB has given me great pleasure of still having independence, even with having low vision. I can still perform my work duties and still enjoy my life.
“Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind gave me the confidence I needed to work with a visual disability”
Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind gave me the confidence I needed to work with a visual disability that other workplaces did not. By working as a contractor with the Federal Government, CLB has been an intermediary so I do not have to tell the employer or defend my disability more than once at the workplace. CLB does that intervention and therefore allows me to work comfortably like anyone else, using appropriate tools to get the job done.
