Working here has forced me to step out of my comfort zone several times. I’ve learned that I enjoy helping people and helping them feel good about themselves when they realize as a blind person that they can also be employed and live a full life.

My aunt used to live in Houston and work for a Lighthouse there. She was born without sight and went to the Mississippi School for the Deaf and Blind. I appreciate all that your company does.
