At Lighthouse Louisiana our mission is to empower people with disabilities through services, employment, and advocacy. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Gulfport create jobs for people who are blind. Proceeds from the sales of high-quality, commercially competitive products help fund services for people who are blind, Deaf, and who have other disabilities.
We help people get jobs, regain their independence, and challenge expectations of the capabilities of people with disabilities. Even as a century-old nonprofit, we’re constantly evolving to better serve our community.
We envision a world where:
- Everyone with a disability who wants to work can find a job
- People who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing have access to communication with everyone
- Vision loss does not mean a loss of independence
- People with disabilities have equal access to community spaces, public transit, and safety net services
