The Chicago Lighthouse, whose credo is “Because there is still hope,” was founded in 1906, and is one of the nation’s most comprehensive social service agencies. Housed under its roof are the oldest and most prominent vision care and rehabilitation program in the U.S.; a nationally acclaimed school for children with multi-disabilities; a world class employment services program; one of the few remaining clock manufacturing facilities in America; a VA program serving veterans in all 50 states; and a radio station. The Chicago Lighthouse works to create opportunities for children, youth and adults who are blind, visually impaired or multidisabled. Services include vocational and educational evaluation and training; adaptive technology; computer applications; job readiness and placement; clinical services; counseling; advocacy; information and referral. Programs are designed to optimize the potential for independent living, economic self-support, and public education through promotion of the abilities of people with disabilities. In 2012, The Lighthouse expanded to Glenview when it opened a comprehensive site at 222 Waukegan Road to better serve residents of the north and northwest suburbs.
